the leather



     Each Sorenson piece begins with salt-cured, full-grain vegetable-tanned steer hide, organically treated in the absence of artificial colors or chemicals.
     All pieces are crafted from the highest graded areas of reserve leather sides from a 130 year-old Midwestern American tannery.
     Each article is hand cut, hand conditioned with beeswax, and hand stitched using a heavy nylon thread. 
     Because of the natural quality of the leather, please expect natural markings and an occasional range scar, plus a handmade uniqueness to each piece.
     Here is a before and after example of the color change of the natural leather you can expect over time:
