New Handcrafted Goods From Café Leather Supply Have Landed In The Shop
Leather has a long history of being associated with the higher-quality elements of material life. Whether that’s a sumptuously appointed interior that’s been artfully stitched together inside a sports car or a dependable wallet that wears its years well as it collects patina in your pocket, good leather is both durable and elegant, a faithful part of the objects we rely on most. Of course, the stuff itself is only one element of what it’s turned into, and the craftsmanship that turns hides into goods is equally if not more important than the raw materials.
Café Leather Supply understands this, and their commitment to both sides of the equation is evident in the end results. We’ve stocked items from them before, but we’ve recently added new items from the Spanish artisans at Café. Like their other products, these are all handcrafted in Spain.
The Uluwatu Flap Wallet is a product with simple and organic lines that allows you to store up to eight business cards, cash, and coins. Perfectly sized for travel, or a dependable “daily driver” that’s used around town.
The Key Case allows you to store keys without scratching your bags, whatever’s in your pocket, and best of all, it will protect your car’s seats from an errant house key poking a hole through them. Think of it like a wallet, only for the things that you’ve already paid for. Like the vintage cars this was designed around, the case will take on a unique patina over time.
The Colombia Portfolio is a documents holder with capacity for a 13” laptop, A4-sized documents, tablets, chargers, books, notebooks, etc. It comes with a convenient handle for practical and comfortable transportation and includes a smartphone compartment in the back to help cut down on bags and cases needed for traveling.
The Tolima Wallet offers protection for your passport. Tolima, in the center of Colombia, is a region characterized by the high quality of its coffee and its wild landscapes, AKA the perfect place to get lost. The Tolima Passport Wallet offers features beyond the travel document holder, such as slots for cards, cash, boarding passes, and even a notebook to take notes throughout your trip in one convenient place.
The Papua Work Apron is handcrafted with special care using 14 or 18oz British Millerain waxed canvas and premium vegetable tanned leather. The leather has been treated and tanned with natural elements such as acacia, quebracho, or mimosa. After its long tanning process, a laborious and meticulous manufacturing process gets carried out by hand in Ubrique (Cádiz, Spain). Because of the premium vegetable tanned leather’s qualities and the durability of the British Millerain fabrics, the Papua apron is an ideal product for any type of work that needs some protection. Each piece is unique, principally because the manufacturing processes, raw materials, and final product are all handcrafted. Both sizes will be made in very limited quantities.
