Punch the holes and fit a Sam Browne stud

Saddle stitch the case

Materials:

All materials are provided.

Sustainability:

The leathers we use are from the Tempesti Tannery in Tuscany, Italy:

We often use offcuts from shoemaking in our classes

Leather is wonderfully tactile and supple

Leather is a byproduct, made from animal hides which would otherwise be destroyed

Veg. tanned leather is naturally tanned using organic vegetable matter such as oak or mimosa bark; an environmentally-friendly process

Because veg. tanned leather is a natural, organical material, the tone and depth of colour varies and will change with use and age, developing its own beautiful patina over time.
