They use carefully selected leather which is vegetable tanned using either bark or plant extracts. This gives the ability to wet mould the leather to certain shapes or tool the leather, and then when it dries it holds the shape and hardens up.

This is a fantastic method for making a knife sheath as it will hold the knife secure without the need for fasteners and straps.

All items are hand stitched using saddle stitch which ensures that should the thread become damaged it will not unravel like many machined stitched items.
