THE LEATHER 

Made with 4-4.5 oz Horween Natural 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

Thread use in the photos: Ecru Waxed Polyester cord.

Our thread is sourced from Maine Thread Company out of Lewiston, Maine, where they make some of the best waxed polyester cord we've gotten our hands on. This medium weight polycord is then used to sew the item together with what's called the "saddle-stitch" or "double-stitch", where two ends of the thread are passed through the same hole twice, allowing for a stronger stitch than a common lock-stitch sewing machine.  How?  When a lock-stitch from a sewing machine breaks, the rest of the thread will start to pull apart, but if a thread breaks on a saddle-stitch, the other thread in that same hole keeps the stitching together, allowing your item to keep from falling apart.
