The Look and Feel of Leather
When most people see leather, their first reaction is to touch it and smell it. The way leather feels is called its hand. In general, the softer the hand, the higher the cost. Our leather is ultra soft and comes from the finest leather tanneries we can find. The raw material, which is a determined by genetics,
greatly influences the quality of leather. Every hide and skin has sections that are naturally wrinkled, softer or thinner in certain areas. Environmental factors, including climate and food supply, also affect the final product. Since leather is a natural material, it is never uniform. Its small surface
imperfections create a unique beauty that can never be duplicated.

The History of Leather and How it is Made
Leather has been made in various locations around the world for more than 5000 years, and the first tanners guilds have been traced as far back as twelfth century England. Although tanning methods have changed with new technologies, the end result is a product that has been valued for centuries.
The first step in the modern tanning method is to apply a protective treatment to the hides (whole pelts from cattle) or skins (the pelts of younger or smaller animals like sheep and goats). Next they are put through a chemical process to keep them soft and flexible. Now the tanners can work with the leather to adjust the thickness, color and apply a variety of finishes. The end product is sent to manufacturers, who cut and sew the leather into apparel and accessories.
