Tell me more about the leather you use.
We use top-grain leather that is sourced in the USA and is a byproduct of the meat industry, making it sustainable. We have nine leather colors; Saddle, Buckskin, Dark Brown, Ocean, Stone, Natural, Black and Charcoal. Our most popular colors are Saddle, Dark Brown and Buckskin because their tanning ins more traditional.
Why do you use the leather you do?
Our signature look is minimal, undecorated and left raw, on purpose. Rather than creating perfectly polished leathers that generate a lot of waste and pollution, ours has been left natural. It's made that way on purpose so you can leave your mark as you use it. That's the best thing about working with our leather, it only gets more attractive with time and use. Be patient. Its ruggedness and character will grow with you.
Where are your products made?
Most of our products are made right here in Lindon, Utah. We make things where it makes sense and where we can make sure the quality is perfect. For that reason some of our bags are made by our team in Leon, Mexico and some of our binding is done in Arizona.
What type of paper do you offer?
#70 text, felt finish, FSC certified, acid-free/archival, min. 30% post-consumer content. We’ll interpret: We love our paper, and we think you will too. Our most popular paper is a tribute to the old-world - cotton rag cream color pages. Built thick to reduce bleed through when using fountain pens, markers, and more.
