Hand-Sewn Saddle Stitching vs Machine Lock Stitching
Hand-sewn saddle stitching uses the “running stitch” technique that offers a stronger construction for our products. Technically, hand-stitched line uses a single thread with needle on both end. Two independent thread intertwine with each other that will not unravel. As a result, the leather will not be separated even if one side of the thread happens to break.
In contrast, other products made by sewing machine with the “lock stitch” technique is more vulnerable since the entire thread will potentially unravel if the thread happens to break, as a result, separate the leather pieces.
All of the edges of our products are carefully painted, burnished and polished by our professional crafters, using heat and friction, to create a stiff, smooth and shiny edges. The robust edges protect the stitching and lead to durability.

Risks and challenges
There is a production limit for each product due to the long crafting hours. Once the rewards pledged exceed the production limit, the next batch will be delivered in October 2019. We will post an update if the number of pledges happen to exceed the production limit. An email will be sent to backers who fall into the second batch.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
