About the Sgraffito Collection

Sgraffito: a form of decoration made by scratching through the surface to reveal of lower layer of contrasting color. ⠀

Normally done on ceramics to reveal a glaze underneath the surface glaze. 

I’ve accomplished the same effect by carefully scratching the leather prior to dyeing it. The scratched surface absorbs more dye resulting in a dark line similar to an ink line.

Made the right way.

Hand stitched. Hand dyed. Hand crafted.

Every item I make is produced entirely by hand. When I say by hand I don't mean I use my hands to feed it into a machine. Every last stitch is punched and sewn with an awl and two needles held between my fingers. A saddle stitch done this way will outlast anything done on a sewing machine. I hand dye every inch of leather with dyes I mix in-house. This allows me to eschew the uniformity that is required in factory made goods and make something that stays true to the individual character of the hide. All the leather is domestically sourced from a small town in Pennsylvania. Like the history I am keeping alive in practicing my trade, properly taken care of, this case will become a part of your personal history. If there was a better way to have made this case I would have done so.
