Percival Tote is cut from a single piece of Wickett & Craig’s vegetable tanned Traditional Harness leather.
Vegetable tanned leather is a beautiful and durable material that will develop a unique character (patina) over decades of use. The process of vegetable tanning is far less pollutive than that of chromium tanning (most commonly used) as vegetable tanning simply uses tree bark to facilitate the transformation from hide to leather.
The leather used is Full Grain meaning it retains all the character from its previous life on the range: insect bites, stretch marks, and scars are all still visible making no two hides (and therefore bags) alike. Honor Leather believes honoring the previous life of each hide and are grateful for the opportunity to highlight the beauty in imperfection while creating something unique that will serve for decades to come.
These bags are hand sewn using saddle stitch construction which is one of the oldest and best ways to join leather. Saddle stitching uses two needles and one thread and each individual stitch is effectively a knot which ensures far greater strength than a machine lockstitch. High quality Ritza Tiger braided thread from Germany is world renowned for its strength. All stress points are reinforced with solid #12 brass rivets and burrs manufactured by The Buckleguy. This was the first leather tote they designed and it is named for Meg, whose surname is Percival.
Each bags is editioned, photographed and cataloged. Each bag is one of a kind and made with honor just for you!
