*Please note this feature is not applicable to Vintage Leather Cufflinks.

Below is a simple guide for you to add this feature to your new pledge or existing pledge.  

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.

 EDGES  

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. 

Hi, we’re the team of THE RAW, Louis and Cherie. We are two working professionals who are impressed by the handcrafting culture and obsessed with the finest handcrafted leather goods.

We appreciate for your interest in our first Kickstarter project and we hope that you would share our ideas and visions of promoting the culture of using handcrafted leather products.

We aim at connecting with more potential and professional crafters around the world to join THE RAW CRAFTERS and we are grateful to have your support in our co-branding idea.

If you are interested in reaching us, feel free to contact us via Kickstarter direct message. We are excited to hear from you and share our story and idea with you.

Thank you.

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.
