Our first collaboration range is with STRANGE Friend and master leathersmith Ruth Pullan. The range consists of 3 of Ruth's classic pieces; Utility Satchel, Long Purse & Card Case in a special STRANGE colourway and featuring the Arnie greyhound motif stamped into each piece.
Ruth uses vegetable tanned leather, traditionally pit-tanned in Britain which she then hand dyes to the shade required. Ruth conditions the leather with her own blend of fats, beeswax and oils to create a beautiful sheen to the leather. The pattern pieces are laid out and cut using a saddler's knife and then stitched by hand using the two needle method using waxed linen thread, a traditional way of manufacturing leathergoods and one which stands the test of time. The edges are burnished for a water-resistant finish. The brass hardware Ruth uses is sand cast in Walsall at the last remaining buckle foundry in the United Kingdom
