Oak Bark Leather Glasses Case
This beautifully hand-cut, hand-stitched glasses case is made from full grain oak bark tanned leather and lined in a classic glen check
The full grain finish enables the extraordinary character of the leather to be seen; each blemish and scar is visible, which results in something truly unique as no two glasses cases are ever the same.
Height 17cm, Width 8cm, Depth 3cm
- Hand and machine stitched, British leather
- Fox Flannel lined
- Blemishes and slight colour variations may be visible
- A white 'bloom' may appear on the surface of the leather which will brush off and fade with age
Each glasses case has been hand-crafted in South Devon by Tanner Bates, a fourth generation leather worker and the leather used is tanned at what is the last remaining traditional oak bark tannery in the British Isles. There has been a tannery on the same site since Roman times and the leather is allowed to tan and preserve for nearly two years before it is used to create each glasses case for The Merchant Fox.
In using Devon river water, British oak bark from renewable sources and taking around two years to produce the rich coloured, organic leather, each bag is unique - a piece of genuine British-made luxury.
The character of leather will vary for every glasses case, making each one of a kind.
