- Our Americana Collection brings back the look and feel that American-made "heirloom" quality leathergoods once had. Made with a rich chestnut colored, vegetable tanned leather from Horween(r) of Chicago.
- “Veg Tanned” leather is a traditional artisanal and time consuming tanning process that creates unique characteristics in an environmentally friendly manner. The hides are processed in large wooden drums with natural tree bark tannins, waxes and Horween®’s proprietary “tanning liquors”; which were developed more than a century ago.
- The slightly “vintage” look and feel of these products truly look better with age and wear. The designs are traditional and classic Americana, with solid antiqued brass hardware, brushed bull-denim cotton linings, hand-stained edges and CCW pockets where noted. All made in our San Diego, California leather shop.
