Before & After: Bare Pewter Legacy

This last Spring we fell in love with our new leather, Bare Pewter. This fall we fell in love again when we saw how wonderfully Bare Pewter ages with use.  Bare Pewter is a full grain leather from a domestic tannery and it’s soft hand makes it the perfect choice for handbags.  Its cool grey mineral tone compliments both spring and fall looks. Take a look at what your Bare Pewter Legacy would look like new and after several months of use.

New Fall Leathers

We are proud to introduce four new leather combinations that we have been hard at work on over the past months: Harness Leather, Royce Leather, Raven Leather and Lead Black with nickel hardware. Lead black leather with nickel hardware will only be available in select briefcases and also by special order.

Our new favorite leather has been a labor of love.  We searched high and low for the perfect matte chocolate brown full grain leather. Once we found it we couldn’t resist pairing it with a polished mocha leather for an elegant tone on tone combination. Our Harness Leather is lined with a brown rip-stop nylon and topped off with solid brass hardware. It looks stunning in our always classic Overnight Briefcase and Legacy Handbag.

We are pleased to show you Sahara Sands more sophisticated older sister: Royce Leather. We were saddened when the tannery that supplied our beloved Sahara Sand leather closed its door and our other tanneries were unable to provide an exact match. Then Horween Leather surprised us and sent us a sample that we liked even more. We paired their Bone Calico nubuck with a pebble grain black leather to create our Royce combination seen here in the clean lines of the Edgecumbe Briefcase and Mini Legacy Handbag.

Our new Raven Leather is so soft it must be touched to be fully appreciated.  This supple jet pebble grain black leather makes a perfect slouchy handbag.  Solid brass hardware adds richness and polish to this casual leather. We are loving it in our Mini Excursion handbag and Fairmount Satchel.
