An endearing term in our minds but what type of leather does it conjure up for you...? "How it was” “In those days" "When I was younger” “I remember when" "Real leather"
When we set about recreating Old Fashioned we tried to incorporate these and all the other descriptions that invoke the thoughts of how leather once was. These whole water buffalo hides are from muddy waters and swamps of tropical and subtropical areas of Nepal. Tanned using older and less up to date technology. In other words, we have tried to make it as it was made then. Hotter tanning and dyeing shrinking the grain more and so accentuating its natural characteristics. Highlight this even further with an aniline finish consisting of little more than a little aniline dyestuff and waxes. A hot iron blends the two and Hey Presto... You've got it, Old Fashioned!
