"A safeguard for keys"
Specifications: 2mm thick cow leather & nickel plated hardware
We create using 100% full grain vegetable tanned leather. If looked after correctly it can last close to a lifetime.
Leather's tough & it is one of the oldest materials humans have created with.
Cheap 'Genuine leather' products are commonly created using bonded leather pieces. This explains why after a couple of months a good looking $25 dollar belt suddenly rips into 2 pieces.
A process of turning raw animal hide into a piece of workable, durable leather is called 'Vegetable tanning', which was used by the ancients and is still used today. It involves placing leather inside a water filled pit with natural materials like wood, fruit and bark. The leather is submerged inside these pits for up to 7 weeks.
Over this period, the concentration of the natural additives increases to alter the properties of the leather. This is so it decomposes at a slower rate when it is taken out of the pit.
Unlike most companies that sell leather goods at affordable prices, we do not paste together scraps and call it 'Genuine leather'. We use the full grain layer of the animal to yield the best, most durable items.
1. Condition the leather whenever it begins to appear dry
(a good rule of thumb is to do this once every 3-6 months)
2. Do not store leather in direct sunlight for extended periods of time
This could dry it out faster and cause cracking
3. Clean with a damp cloth to remove dirt and grime
These naturally collect when a product is used regularly
4. Do not store when wet
This is to avoid mildew forming on the leather (a fungus, similar to mould)
5. Remove moisture from leather by leaving it to air dry in a warm room
Using a blow dryer can cause the leather to become extremely dry and crack when bent or folded.
