Materials

Vegetable Tanned Leather

Strong, durable and resilient; no other material compares to our premium grade, vegetable tanned Italian leather. Each aniline dyed leather product looks fantastic out of the box; and only improves with age. Based in Tuscany, our suppliers are members of the Pelle Conciata al Vegetale; the most highly respected association of tanneries. Using time honoured processes to produce a truly exceptional product, the hides are aged for up to 40 days in natural tannins extracted from Ligurian chestnut and Argentinean quebracho trees and are finished a combination of natural wax emulsions and bees' wax.

We only use 'Full Grain' leather hides. Full Grain comes from the top layer of the hide which has all of the grain, therefore, 'full' grain. The natural surface of full grain leather burnishes and beautifies with use. It is the best leather money can buy and the only leather good enough for CarveOn.

While CarveOn products are built to last a lifetime, a little TLC can greatly enhance their longevity.

Leather Care Tips
  1. Should your leather get overly wet, simply dry it slowly. Speed drying creates a change to the chemical structure of leather. We recommend room temperature drying with gentle air currents rather than applying a direct heat source such as a hair-dryer or radiator.
  2. Dry leather is thirsty leather. If the leather begins to exhibit signs of desiccation just gently rub a light leather dressing or natural cream into it. We heartily recommend the Tandy Leather Factory's natural Eco-Flo Professional Conditioner Crème (or similar), available here. Keep in mind that conditioning leather usually darkens it slightly. Don't worry, this is normal and should dry out. After applying simply allow to dry and buff out with a lint free cloth.
  3. If your leather gets dirty, clean it with a damp cloth preferably or alternatively use a mild castile soap / hand dishwashing liquid, diluted at least 1:10 (it should not be sudsy), and allow to dry before conditioning.
  4. Natural products, such as leather, need to breathe; so please don't wrap it in plastic.

We love experimenting with new materials so we often run limited edition products in new materials, if you’d like to get notified of them and our offers, sign up for our newsletter.

Sustainability

We went to great lengths to ensure our suppliers were environmentally conscious. We take the mistreatment of the environment extremely seriously both as individuals and collectively as a business. We do what we can:

  • We only use traditional Vegetable Tanned Leather. Vegetable tanning is the most environmentally friendly way to dye leather, due to the use of natural ingredients rather than chemicals. Raw materials used for vegetable tanning are natural tannins, obtained from different parts of plants including woods, barks, fruits, fruit pods and leaves.
  • Merino Wool is a remarkable performance fiber, and it’s also entirely natural. Merino wool requires grass for its growth, a completely renewable resource. In the wild, the sheep naturally shed wool, and farmers have developed techniques to remove the wool without harm to the sheep or the environment.
  • Our wood suppliers are FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes) registered and are also members of a number of Woodland heritage trusts.
  • Duck Cotton - Our premium Duck Cotton is made in the USA from 100% natural cotton. It is made water repellant using a wax based finish. No environmentally damaging fluoropolymers or formaldehyde are used in the process.
  • Eco Packaging - We only use recycled materials for our packaging and have serious concerns about the use of non-biodegradable plastics for disposable packaging. It just makes no sense to us.

Vouchers

A handmade, personalised accessory is a great gift. To order a gift voucher, order them here. When using a gift voucher, if the order exceeds the amount of the voucher, the balance must be paid with a credit card or other accepted payment method.  

Import Taxes & Duties

There are no import taxes or duties payable within the EU. Outside of the EU, many countries have their own import taxation system although most generally do not charge duties on small goods under $200. Customers with shipping addresses outside of the EU are solely responsible for all duties and import taxes if they do incur. 

Payments

We accept all major debit and credit cards through our extremely secure checkout. We have two payment processing options, SagePay and PayPal. 

Returns & Warranty

We handcraft and vigorously inspect each product before we ship it. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, return it within 30 days of receipt of your order for a full refund. In the unlikely event you have an issue due to defects of materials or craftsmanship, we'll cover return shipping and send you a replacement when we receive the defective item.

Images vs. Reality

There maybe slight differences in the leather colour and texture due to variations in different hides, but that’s part of the beauty of using natural materials. Natural marks may vary from product to product. These slight differences will only add to its uniqueness and character.
