I love designing leathergoods as much as I love seeking out the best leathers for our products. Leather is at the core of our brand and I am fortunate to have great relationships with amazing tanneries and people around the world. Tanneries like Horween® in Chicago that align so well with our designs and our company in general.
For the past twenty-five years I have been sourcing, collecting and developing these leathers that I love and that fit our brand so well. Over this time, we have found leathers that are unique in one way or another. Small batch lots, custom leathers, sample runs and other leathers with great stories and histories. It sounds crazy, but sometimes leathers that hold emotional value to myself or the tanneries. Leathers that I didn’t want to just “sell” but rather “offer” to customers that recognize their value and appreciate their history and/or story. Many of these leathers are in micro-batches of 200-500sf and others that were tanned more than 65-years ago, like our Horween “Timber Tanned” Calfskin leather. This fall we will start to release these leather products in exclusive, private sales events in our Leather Vault.
