Hand Clicking

Always remember to measure twice and cut once. Each component to every creation is patiently shaped by hand, a technique once known as "clicking."


Beveling

Beveling

With the leather clicked to its final shape, the raw edges are beveled to remove the squared corners, resulting in a more shapely, rounded edge.


Assembly

Assembly

Assembly begins once each component is clicked, beveled, and burnished. Every stitch line is reinforced with all-natural adhesive to guarantee years upon years of use. The edges are then sanded flush and prepared for stitching.


Saddle Stitching

The Process - Saddle Stitching

The most intensive step of the leather crafting process - Saddle stitching is a time-tested technique and has been proven as a superior method in leather crafting. Each stitch is laid by hand, ensuring strength and longevity.


Burnishing

Finally, the edges are burnished - A process which uses friction to polish the exposed raw leather edges, creating a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
