Product description

Tanner Bates are traditional leatherworkers. Everything you see is handmade by our small team of artisan craftspeople in Dartington, South Devon.

A handsome vintage looking leather personalised passport case.

For the seasoned traveller who loves fine leather. The Tanner Bates Passport Holder is made specially for the passport and essential travel documents. We use leather from our favourite Italian tannery for the outer cover. The leather already has a weathered, distressed appearance as if it has already been around the world twice!

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 front, lower right corner. The hot stamping process will blind emboss (no colour) the letters to match our maker's marque. 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.

Made from

The Passport Holder 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.

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.
