leather goods out of Cottage Grove, Wisconsin. All pieces are made from vegetable tanned leather by Kenton Sorenson. Sorenson clearly knows what he’s doing and puts a lot of pride into his work. The outcome are great pieces like this leather iPhone Wallet, which is made from leather that is salt-cured, full-grain vegetable-tanned cattle hide. Not to mention, it’s organically treated without the use of any artificial colors or chemicals. The tanning process is time consuming and way too complicated for me to fully understand, but the outcome are beautiful leather goods that darken into a rich caramel color over time. Everything is made by Sorenson in his studio – even the stitching and hardware are the best quality. It’s all about simple pieces that are well made. Real well made.
