Natural Hermann Oak Leather iPhone Sleeve
You're looking at an iPhone sleeve constructed with 5 oz thick Hermann Oak vegetable tanned leather. Thanks to the thickness and strength of the leather, your iPhone would be protected even if it is accidentally dropped. The stitches are entirely done by hand to withstand daily usage, the reinforced stitches would not come apart even with a good yank. A slit is cut on one side of the sleeve to allow easy access to your cell. Each sleeve is individually designed to ensure that it fits the desired devices perfectly.
About the leather:
Hermann Oak® Leather Co. found its beginning when Lewis Charles Hermann started tanning leather in St. Louis, Missouri in 1881 to serve the local harness trade. Three more generations of Hermanns have followed Lewis’s footsteps to bring the finest vegetable leathers to market. The Hermann Oak® tanning process has not changed much throughout the years. They still use the finest natural tree barking their tanning liquors for richness and texture. The leather is soaked in ground-vats until its firm, strong and tight fibered. Hermann Oak’s technicians hand-work each sir for a smooth, consistent, even colored piece of leather. You’ll appreciate the quality that comes from over 100 years of experience.
The worlds best saddle artisans specifically use Hermann Oak® leather because of how well the leather tools, finishes, and ages.

High quality sleeve. The leather is nice and thick, the stitches seem solid, and the edges have a nice finish. It looks like a high-end item. I'm sure it will develop a nice patina over time.
The fit was a bit tight at first, but the leather stretched and after a week or so the fit became perfect. That's the right approach, some other makers do a leather sleeve that fits perfect at first, then become too loose after a week. So 10/10 on the fit, which IMO is very important.
My worry when ordering it was that it might be a bit big given the thick leather, that it would be a big object to carry in your pant pockets. It turned out to not be as big as I expected, which is nice. The asymmetric design actually allows it to be narrower than other sleeves that have stitches on both sides.
Amazing craftsmanship. Also, received super fast to California from Hong Kong
