“Time and tide”…as they say, with the above representing yet more examples of our current product line from early 1900 leather case and bag styles to photo’s of the heavy going now in our past given time worn hands. Cigar cases (calf leather with a goat leather liner), gun slips, cartridge bags and totes; large to small, delicate to custom design…we continue to do it all (mostly).
WHAT MAKES A HAND SEWN STITCH SPECIAL?
Each of our hand-sewn stitches is locked into the leather. If a hand sewn stitch breaks the entire stitch line won’t pull out as happens with a machine stitched line where the underneath thread is locked into the top thread. Our hand sewing LINEN thread (from France) is twisted a first time, and then these threads are assembled and twisted a second time. The term “câblé”, or corded, signifies this double twist. This obviously increases the strength of the thread, but also makes it more rounded, particularly adaptable for leather work, twined and cabled with a light dressing of wax added.
NOTE: All leather shops use sewing machines and though to a very limited extent, we do as well. Sewing machines are a mainstay with most Saddle makers, who also make bags and hand sew.
