Founded in 1867, Wickett and Craig is one of just two remaining vegetable tanneries in the U.S.
A labor-intensive method that requires skilled workers, veg-tanning is a natural, eco-friendly process that produces deep-colored leathers of superior quality. Wickett and Craig has been perfecting the art of leather making for more than a 150 years.
Aquarian Leather is run by father and daughter team, Ferruccio (Frank) and Jessica Sorichetti. They employ a small group of highly skilled leather workers who help them make the luxury leather products Aquarian is known for.
Emmanuel Farre, a self-taught patina artist, has been transforming genuine leather goods into custom coloured works of art.
Emmanuel began his trade in Toulouse, France. After studying and practicing on his own collection, he began working professionally alongside the Theatre National de Toulouse, Santoni and Noreve Saint Tropez.
Emmanuel's exclusive process transforms any raw leather into a timeless, one-of-a-kind piece.
Risks and challenges
Our goal is to reduce the risk for our backers as much as possible. We understand that you are taking a risk when you back any project, so we've done everything possible to make sure we will deliver our product to our backers on time.
We know exactly what our manufacturer's production capacity is. We have made sure that all of our backers will get their rewards on time.
Many new companies make the mistake of thinking that creating a prototype and mass producing a product uses the same process. Our manufacturer created our prototypes using the exact method that they will be using in full scale production. This ensures that the wallets you see, will be virtually identical to the wallet you will receive.
Even a successfully funded Kickstarter can run into financial trouble once the reality of creating the product sets in. We have nailed down, or already incurred, every cost associated with the production of our wallets. We have ensured that each and every backer will 100% receive their rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
