Stitching Method - Hand-stitching vs Machine-stitching
Hand-stitching - The traditional method saddle makers use to make horse saddles, also known as saddle stitching. This method is known for its durability and elegance. Leather items are sewn stitch by stitch by hand. The stitch line of hand-stitched items is slightly raised resulting in a more dimensional look. Hand-stitching is a very time-consuming process, resulting in a higher cost.
Machine-stitching - Although machine-stitching is not as elegant as traditional hand-stitching. Every item from us is carefully stitched together using a machine. We use a much tighter stitch length compared to hand-stitching to create a neat and tightly-packed stitch line that's very difficult to recreate by hand. This method allows us to price products lower and provide more value. Yet, still being able to provide a durable product of top quality materials and craftsmanship.
About the leather:
Made from wonderfully tanned vegetable tanned cow leather. Vegetable tanning is a traditional way of tanning using tannic acids naturally found from plant species. The natural appearance before painted, has a slightly brownish tinge over a beige color, with a natural, woody and earthy smell. Due to the nature of the tannins, a unique patina will develop and "carmelize" over time.
