We try to find meaningful material for our products and the material itself adds a new dimension to some fairly mundane items. Alongside our metal and wood we are adding leather. Leather from significant sources such as card cases using the leather from Soviet cold war era flying jackets and leather from WW2 era American flying jackets. Carrying these items connects you in however tenuous a way with real epic events in the history of the 20th century. Click on the image above to see the pages where this new range will appear.
