    Slight Variations

    Each item we feature is skillfully and lovingly crafted by exceptional makers. Handmade leather products may vary slightly due to the nature of cowhide, the tanning/dying processes and the human hand. Leather lovers realize that fine leather conserves naturally-occurring marks, scrapes, and scars as insignias of nature, not defects. It is also normal for colors to slightly vary, but not significantly.
