The Summer Plan: More Choices, Refined Designs

Updated: Jan 6


More Choices | Refined Designs

As I continue making products, I’m constantly asking myself “How can I improve upon this design?”

Hand-dying leather can create many unique variations, even from piece to piece in the same product. For some that’s an attractive characteristic. For me, I want to also and offer uniform color options.


Leather Options

It’s that reason which has led me to researching what I might use to accomplish this goal. Below is a picture of available Italian buttero veg-tanned leather. It’s a premium leather with a beautiful dye job completely through the hide. Imagine any of these colors (or combinations of colors!) going into your next long-lasting, custom-built product!


Thread Choices

To compliment that leather selection, I’m also offering a large range of thread colors as well, which is shown below. The Vinymo MBT is a polyester, pre-waxed thread which is dye-finished and environmentally friendly. Best of all, it’s strong and well suited for saddle stitching.



Bold and Modern Look

The basket weave is a beautiful design that many people find pleasing, but I realize not everyone wants it. My Ready-to-Ship stock items will do away with basket weaving as a default and that will be a custom option instead.


Laser Etching

I haven’t tested it personally, but my supplier tells me this Italian leather accepts laser etching well. If it’s not up to my satisfaction though, the Hermann Oak leather will still be available for those custom applications.

Let’s Talk!

So if this was interesting, helpful or maybe you have some questions then please leave me a comment below. Do you have other questions that could become future topics? Email me at matt@direwolfleather.com and that could be next.

Have a great day everyone!
