At Stitch & Hide, we invest extensively in product designs that are inspired by classic and vintage styles. These product designs are enriched with a wealth of inspiration from around the world. Our designs are classically old world but with creative and fast-forward thinking, our products blend into an ever changing market place.
Our leathers are prepared using a natural vegetable tanning process which produces only the finest and most luxurious products. It takes its name from the raw materials used for the tanning. These are natural tannins obtained from different part of plants including woods, barks, fruits, fruit pods and leaves. It is the most traditional and the most recognizable of the tanning processes. It’s a natural process practiced for centuries in many parts of the world, by hand, using time honored techniques and formulas that were developed by an ancient and traditional craft. It is the only form of tanning that allows the leather to show its unique characteristics, retaining the natural flaws and markings. The natural tannins used in this process produce the rich, warm hues created by Mother Nature herself. Because vegetable tanning is environmentally friendly it means that leather products that have been vegetable tanned can be recycled. No two vegetable tanned items are alike. All those years of pride and quality go into a vegetable tanned leather item created by Stitch & Hide. Each and every customer who purchases one of our products is connected to this time honoured tradition.
We use full grain leathers of the superior grade. The hallmark characteristics of our leathers differentiate them from other types of leather. Our full grain leather is taken from the top layer of the hide. It retains the grain and the natural markings of the hide. Because the leather is vegetable tanned it is the only form of tanning that allows the leather to show its unique characteristics, retaining the natural flaws and markings. Each leather product tells its own story—it carries the individual scars, wrinkles, growth marks, veins, scratches and markings of the original hide—making it unique and personal. These are characteristics of vegetable tanned leather. This allows each owner the privilege of something that is unique, distinctive and exceptional.
Stitch & Hide blends the cultures and lifestyles of both Australia and Southern California. The designs are everlasting and enduring. Our founding partners share a passion and love for the making of great leather accessories for men and women that include a full collection of wallets, belts, card holders, iPad and iPhone cases, and beautifully crafted women’s clutches, bags and belts.
