We offer you premium leather, carefully hand selected and manufactured by experienced craftsmen.
The quality of our bags derive from the successful interaction between a selection of raw materials, experienced leather tanners, detail oriented manufacturers, and the use of only the finest accessories. From the leather selection to the finished product, we work directly with highly skilled craftsmen in Pakistan every step of the way.
In order to meet high quality expectations on the durability and natural aspect of our products, we have chosen to work with cow leather. This allows our products to be resilient and soft at the same time. Moreover, the leather that we use is in its most natural form; entire grain - meaning that all layers of the leather have been kept and worked together. With an average thickness of 1.7mm, it is twice as thick as the leather used in conventional leather bags and thus more robust and natural in its essence. In order to ensure a beautiful surface, without any unnatural changes in the structure, we select our raw material carefully and use healthy cowhide from the North of Pakistan.
We at Buckle & Seam work only with long established family tanneries who use the finest raw materials in order to create our beautiful products. While the majority of the world's leather is tanned involving harmful chemicals such as Chrome VI, Lead and environmentally harmful chemical substances. Not only have we committed ourselves to using the highest quality materials to create our products, we are also committed to reducing the environmental footprint of our products as much as possible. Therefore, we chose to only use vegetable tanned leather that takes approximately 3 weeks from start to finish, and requires experienced craftsmen to create.
Our leather colour is called Crazy Horse Full Grain Cowhide Leather. This colour aims to preserve the natural and raw look of the leather, with as little colour additives as possible. As the leather naturally ages, our products will continue to develop a unique patina, meaning that every piece will become truly unique.
Most of the leather goods sold in the Western world are produced in the Indian subcontinent (Pakistan, Bangladesh, India), however very few brands actually communicate this fact. The majority of leather companies prefer to add a small finish stating 'made in Italy' or 'made in France' to claim that their products are made in Europe. We at Buckle & Seam do not agree with the use of this false advertising. Pakistan is a country with an amazing fashion heritage, beautiful craftsmanship and talent we are proud to be working so closely with. Northern Pakistan is nationally renowned for its thick and high quality leather; why shouldn’t the rest of the world know about it?
