Monogramming is our way to personalize and add a touch of sophistication to make a one-of-a-kind OWEN STITCH product.
Leather is living material that bleeds, with time, wear and use, and develops singular personality features. We believe that monogramming is a timeless way to make our long-lasting leather products even more special.
Our monogramming provision allows for up to four characters. This can be used to add initials, abbreviations, year, or a short word of your choice.
The process is entirely handmade, with each letter carefully placed into a custom-made tool and leveled for precise placement. With no room for mistakes, our artisans take great care to ensure a high level of attention to detail, ensuring a beautifully finished piece.
Embossing itself is done on a hot stamping machine, which has been manufactured specifically for OWEN STITCH by a family-run machine workshop in South Korea. Our letter library is a work of art in and of itself, accounting for over 180 characters, each micro-machined from solid blocks of brass and hand-finished with plus or minus 0.1-millimeter tolerances.
As for our font, we use the Maison, a grotesque typeface developed by Timo Gaessner, a Berlin-based graphic and type designer. The font was constructed using rigid elements to achieve a minimalist, industrial feel, paying homage to early twentieth-century modernist design concepts. We have been using the Maison font since our inception and plan to continue doing so.
Make your four character choice:

Á Č Ď É Ě Í Ň Ó Ř Š Ť Ú Ů Ý Ž
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
/ : ? ! @ & # + - .
But choose wisely; it's important to choose your characters carefully, whether for You or a person gifted. Our products are built to last a very long time, and the monogramming is meant to add personal significance.
