This leather case is excessively over-engineered with no breakable parts like snaps, zippers, or magnets. The stitching is purposeful with only 5 stitches per inch so there's more leather between the needle holes and fewer holes to start a tear. Stress points are reinforced with steel or copper rivets. The hinge is made completely of leather - it will never rust or break. You can use the sturdy handle to carry it when you're on your daily commute, or you have the option to wear it on your shoulder or crossbody.
Watch the fascinating "How It's Made" video below to see how the leather Grandfather Cases are made at our factory.
Leather - We only use full-grain leather, which is the strongest and most resistant cow leather you can find. It’s called “full-grain” because none of the leather is shaved off. The full toughest top layer is still there. That’s why it’s so thick and strong.
Lining - The inside is lined with pigskin, which is even tougher than cowskin, instead of being lined with some brittle fabric with flowers on it that rips and tears with minimal use.
Thread - Everything is sewn together with the strongest thread we can get, marine-grade polyester. It's the same stuff sail makers use on boat sails, and those things take a beating from high winds everytime they’re used. It’s much better than using the typical nylon thread because it never decomposes, so it’ll hold the case together forever.
Hardware - We only use 316 stainless steel so it will never rust, gives the leather case a great look and even more durability.
