Tell me about the Leather you use

We use two types of high quality leather in our workshop. All our NZ leather comes from Tasman Tanning Ltd who work to use formulations that minimise waste. Water-based products are used instead of solvents.

Our Vegetable Tanned (veg tan) leather comes from Italy. It goes through a traditional process using tannin extracted from tree bark, with no toxic substances producing individual and long lasting hides that just get better with age.

Where are the products made?

Everything is made in our workshop in Raglan. Start to finish, from scratch, by hand. Everything is made individually by one of our craftspeople using traditional construction methods.
