Vegetable tanned leather is a beautiful and durable material that will develop a unique character (patina) over decades of use. The process of vegetable tanning is far less pollutive than that of chromium tanning (most commonly used) as vegetable tanning simply uses tree bark to facilitate the transformation from hide to leather.
Honor Leather uses Full Grain leather, meaning it retains all the character from its previous life on the range: insect bites, stretch marks, and scars are all still visible making no two hides (and therefore bags) alike. They believe in honoring the previous life of each hide and are grateful for the opportunity to highlight the beauty in imperfection while creating something unique that will serve for decades to come.
These bags are hand sewn using saddle stitch construction which is one of the oldest and best ways to join leather. Saddle stitching uses two needles and one thread and each individual stitch is effectively a knot which ensures far greater strength than a machine lockstitch. They use high quality Ritza Tiger braided thread from Germany which is world renowned for its strength. All stress points are reinforced with solid #12 brass rivets and burrs manufactured by The Buckleguy.
