About Our Designs

We want each item we make to last a lifetime. As a result, we have selected only the best leathers available to us. These include:

  • Buttero: The most famous product from the well-known ‘Conceria Walpier’ tannery in Italy. Their tanning recipe has been improved over 45 years and reached perfection! This leather has a silky smooth touch with tight grain and dense structure. It is ‘aniline-dyed’, full-grain leather, which looks and smells amazing. It will patina and develop character straight away.
  • Pueblo: A very special Italian full grain leather by the ‘Badalassi Carlo’ tannery, who have perfected their recipe over 60 years.  Pueblo is dyed through, finished and then artistically buffed using a special machine that gives that rustic look. Pueblo leather has an amazing patina as it ages. Application of our leather balm will cause it to smooth as it wears too.
  • Minerva Nofin: Another wonderful vacchetta from one of the best Italian tanners, the ‘Badalassi Carlo’ tannery. The real vacchetta is only made in Tuscany – the tradition extends back more than 60 years! This is the unfinished version of famous Minerva article – you can finish each leather by yourself however you want or just leave as it is and reach patina will develop quickly.
  • Minerva Box: Vegetable tanned vacchetta leather from Italy, it is a full-grain leather and has supple character, medium to soft temper. This leather has a wonderful aniline finish without artificial covering that are sometimes used in lesser products to mask imperfections in the skins (e.g. pigments/films). This leather has the unique “box” embossed pattern which makes its grain constant throughout the whole skin area and gives a nice grain texture across the skin. It feels and smells amazing and ages beautifully as it is used.

Stitching

Each wallet is painstakingly hand-stitched using a proven heritage technique called “saddle stitching”. This is done entirely by hand, and produces an incredibly strong stitch. Unlike a “lock stitch” produced by a sewing machine, where the item may start to come apart if the thread is broken in even just one place, a saddle-stitched item is much stronger. A single break in the thread will not usually allow the item to come apart, as two complete threads in a continuous figure of eight hold the parts together.

Treat the item periodically with a very small quantity of our C&T Leather Balm. Apply it to your hands as a thin film and rub it onto the leather to keep it moist and supple. Application of more than a very thin film of balm to the pueblo leather items is likely to smooth the leather into a less matt finish (which you may or may not want!)
