Is Crafted By Hand
We've scoured the earth to find the very best leather available to us and hand-picked each type that we use on your bags. Our top leathers currently hail from Turkey and Brazil and are brought back to the States to be used by the artisans who craft each and every product by hand. The majority of our items are hand-crafted using 100% Natural Veg Leather. We also offer other varieties including Oiled, Bridle, Soft Italian and more. Each type carries its own characteristics such as weight, grain, stiffness, and color.
Tells A Story
Our leather is touched by real life and may display stretch marks, scars, brands, and insect bites. These elements of life, displayed through our all-natural leather, are what give our items their individuality and character. Our bags tell a story - and that story is carried on through the embossing of your unique personalization. Variations of color and texture are common when working with genuine leather, which will make each bag that we sell unique. Different leathers are going to wear differently, and your bag may change appearance over time.
Lasts A Lifetime
With normal use, the leather can become slouchy and soft. It will also darken with light and touch, giving it a vintage look and feel over time. Exposure to hand sanitizer, perfume or anything alcohol-based will cause damage to the leather. Contact with makeup, oils, dyes and dark denim can also stain the leather and be difficult to remove. We suggest that by keeping your leather item out of direct sunlight, heat, humidity, and contact with water, you will be on the right track to have it last a lifetime!
Is Made Sustainably
In partnership with our tannery, Sepiciler, Jon Hart Design is committed to protecting our environment. Since the opening of Sepiciler's first tannery wastewater treatment plant in 1984, up to 264,172 gallons of water are being treated daily to minimize impact on local wildlife and habitats. Sepiciler has undergone certification and auditing for the Leather Working Group Environmental Stewardship Program , an outstanding achievement in regards to environmental responsibility and product dependability. Additionally, a solar plant project with a capacity of 12 megawatts will be completed in 2018, further minimizing the environmental footprint of our products.
