THE LEATHER
Made with 4-4.5 oz Horween Dark Cognac Dublin, this leather is waxy and has a beautiful pull-up when stresses are put into the leather, giving it a marble look. Here are the specifics on what make's up Horween's Dublin leather:

- Full Grain: Leather that has its surface left completely intact, showing all natural characteristics of the hide.
- Vegetable Tanned: A tanning method that employs vegetable liquors derived from tree barks. This method of tanning is very traditional and takes longer to achieve than chrome tanning.
- Aniline: Dyes and finishes that contain no pigment. When used on leather they provide a rich, clear stain that allows the natural character of the article to be seen.
- Fat Liquored: Leather that has been nourished and conditioned with emulsified oils.
- Pull-up: The temporary lightening of certain leathers when folded. This is caused by displacing oil and waxes.

"More rustic than our base Essex line, Dublin is a veg tan infused with a rich blend of natural waxes and then hot plated. It has all the supple characteristics of Essex with a darker surface color that showcases the natural grain.” - The Tannery Row

THE THREAD
Here I’m using waxed brown polycord from Maine Thread Company out of Lewiston, Maine USA. The thread here is .040” medium weight and is stiched using a Saddle-Stitch or Double-Stitch where two needles go through the same hole in opposite direction allowing for a stronger stitch than most commercial sewing machines.
COLORS - I have 17 separate thread color options: Raspberry, Turquoise, Royal Blue, Scarlet, Lilac, Emerald, Kelly Green, Olive, Orange, Mocha, Brown (pictured), Ecru, Topaz Gold, Natural, White, Tan, and Black.

THE HARDWARE
The brass button stud comes from Buckleguy out of Massachusetts and will hold your wallet closed securely.
