Is it real leather?

For the most part, yes, unless the product's description says otherwise.  Most of our products are made with 100% cowhide, which includes the leather cord used to sew our leather goods together.  If you are looking for a vegan-friendly accessory, please contact us through the "Custom Order" page and tell us what you are looking for.

Where does the leather come from?

All leathers we use are made in the USA.  Our suppliers include Tandy Leather Company, Springfield Leather Company, and Leather Cord USA.  For more information, please follow the links listed below:

How long does it take to make a leather accessory?

Each product is different, depending on the size and detail put into it.  Every accessory is designed by our founder, Jamie, who starts by making a paper pattern, then cuts it out of the full leather hide, holes are punched individually, and finally each stitch is sewn with a needle.  All steps are done by hand, without the use of machines.

Smaller items such as Eyeglass Cases take about 45 minutes to an hour, Clutch Wallets take about 3-4 hours, and Handbags may take 4-6 hours to fully produce.  These times may vary.
