This pen case is sophisticatedly crafted from bridle leather, a traditional British leather-finishing method that provides extra density and durability to the product. The bridle leather feels more lustrous and sturdier when compared to other forms of leather-finishes. Characterized by leather bloom, the natural white powder on the surface, enhances the organic patterns formed during the crafting process, making every pen case individually unique. The leather is also coated in tallow and dyed with vegetable oil, which provides an exceptional elegance to house your favorite writing instruments.
A high-quality, brass zipper gusset is hand-sewn to this pen case which also matches the stamped golden Superior Labor logo. The Bridle Leather Pen Case comes in three color variations: navy, red, and dark brown.
Because each case is individually crafted from organic leather, no two pouches are the same. There will be individual differences in the color, thickness, and texture of the leather.
