Welcome to Oakenlander!
Oakenlander leatherworks produces select luxury goods in small batch quantities for men and women. Aside from the main collection, limited runs are offered in new designs and exclusive leathers.
Each item is constructed from Grade A vegetable tanned English bridle leather from the USA. Premium waxed thread from Germany is used throughout the entire range. For corrosion resistance, solid brass hardware from the USA is used whenever possible on all products.
After an item is designed, the components are carefully measured on the hide and cut out by hand. Next, the pieces are assembled (including hardware), the edges sanded, and the item is marked for all necessary stitching. During this process, as few as one single length of thread is hand stitched for a seamless appearance*. Raw edges are burnished, dressed, and finished with wax. The item is then inspected and buffed prior to packaging.
*larger or more complex pieces, such as briefcases, may use more than a single length.
