Leather

Our Chromexcel leather comes from a multi-generational Horween Tannery in Chicago established in 1905. Each hide is hand-tanned one at a time using old-world tannages and techniques. Chromexcel leather is produced using bark retannage from a family recipe, and then hot stuffed with a secret blend of natural oils and greases for a supple and weather resistant finish. 

We work with natural materials which by virtue have variation or imperfections. Every hide is different, each with its own blemishes/characteristics these should be enjoyed as a sentiment of the animal they came from. We understand that people can sometimes expect a flawless product and while that is what we aim to achieve, we also aren't bothered by cosmetic blemishes in the same way other Handbag labels are.

Process

Our bags are made entirely in-house. Using a number of techniques ranging from hand embroidery/sewing to braiding. Our shoulder straps are made with an 8 strand round braid and all of the seams are braided with a basket weave, we use techniques that take time but ensure longevity. We encourage our customers to put their bags to use daily and to enjoy the unique patina that develops through individual use. All embroidery is done by hand by George Banks on a 1930's Singer embroidery machine. 

Each bag takes approximately 20-25 hours to make.

Lining

All of our bags are fully lined with an 8oz brushed cotton twill with our floral print.
