HOW STITCHING IS MADE?
A signature of all OWEN STITCH full grain leather products is the 100% linen thread stitch. Each product is hand sewn using a saddle stitch, a hallmark of exquisite quality that isn’t possible with a sewing machine. It takes time, but so does anything worth holding onto.
WHAT IS ETHICAL SOURCING?
It is a conscious and sustainable approach to obtaining materials. A transparent and holistic connection with farmers, shepherds and factories. A ground-up process of direct material sourcing. Learn more about ethical sourcing here.
