Product description

Uniquely interesting handmade leather pocket protector made from Italian leather with a very strong character

Our Leather Pocket started life as a functional pocket protector. We enhanced its stylish lines, cut it from our best Italian saddle leather, stitched it with heavy thread and strengthened it with copper rivets. Our Handmade Leather Pocket is a rugged fashion accessory as well as a good looking functional utility. It was originally made for carrying hand tools in the pocket but can also be used for pens or whatever else takes your fancy. Some keep it in their handbag or briefcase while others just leave it on the desk. The feel and smell of this leather is just great to have around.

The Handmade Leather Pocket looks great with blue denim (and a matching Tanner Bates belt) and is popular with both men and women.

Perfect gift for 3rd Wedding Anniversary, Leather Anniversary.

Variations

Personalisation of up to 12 characters is available. We use traditional bookbinders brass type (24pt Gill Sans) embossed on the pocket lip. The hot stamping process uses foil to emboss the letters, choose between gold, silver, black and blind (no colour) embossing. The personalisation will follow the same orientation as our maker's marque.

Please note, personalised items cannot be exchanged or returned.

The leather has a full grain finish which means that every blemish or scar on the cows skin will be present on the finished hide and apparent on the finished product. The hides are dyed by hand at the tannery with an aniline dye. This process allows the grain and all the individual markings on the cows skin to show through. The dye is absorbed into the hide in an irregular way so giving a unique appearance to every belt. No two are exactly the same.

Comes in three sizes and two leather choices Saddle Tan and Conker.

Made from

The Tool Pocket is handmade in Dartington South Devon by traditional leather craftspeople using either Italian cowhide. The hides are aniline dyed which, like stain on wood, lets the grain and all its natural imperfections show through. No two are exactly the same.

Tanner Bates products are different. We are hand makers, leather specialists, a small business of 3 makers - all apprentice trained in our Devon workshop. Our roots are in traditional equestrian leatherwork and our techniques and hand tools are the same as those used by saddlers and bridlemakers for generations.

We pay attention to details especially our edges which are sanded, sealed and burnished. This edging detail, which can only be achieved by hand with time and concentration, is only found on traditional hand made leatherwork. This technique and the quality of our leather is what makes Tanner Bates products different from other mass produced and factory made items.

The Italian full grain bark tanned leather is crafted in Florence by artisan tanners. At this family owned tannery they still practice the ancient method of tanning with bark from mimosa and chestnut trees rather than chemicals to slowly transform the hides into leather. The slow process of bark tanning yields a leather with a smell and patina reminiscent of a time past.

Each copper rivet is set by hand.

Natural leather will be kept in good supple condition and last longer if it is treated from time to time with a good quality Hide Food and dressed with a liquid wax. Polish with a horsehair brush.
