Our leather is sourced locally at Oregon Leather, as well as from a tannery in Pennsylvania, and hand-selected for its quality. Our hides are cut into straps with a hydraulic press to ensure precision and consistency. NOTE: Our tan leather might feel stiff at first, but it will soften and darken to a lovely caramel brown with use.
