Additionally... About Our Leather and Canvas
The leather used by J. Panther Luggage Co. is the product of traditional processes, and is rich in oils, fats, extracts and aniline dyes. Extremely durable, it also ages beautifully. Our sole supplier is the Horween tannery of Chicago, established in 1905 and famous for its 'Cordovan' leather, a staple of European luxury goods houses. Horween also supplies ball leather to the NBA and NFL. Made from 100% North American hides, our leather is the result of a tanning process known as ‘Hot Stuffing,’ which allows the hides’ true, beautiful character – including grain, marks, freckles and scars – to show through. We encourage the use of these ‘marked’ parts of the hide, since this renders each item truly unique while also minimizing wastage.
Our leather is not mass-produced; it's tanned using the same artisanal process and machinery that Horween has used since the 1800's. As a result, shading may vary slightly from item to item and panel to panel.
NATURAL ANILINE DYES AND FINISHES ARE USED IN THE TANNING OF OUR LEATHER AND MAY TRANSFER ONTO GARMENTS IN SOME INSTANCES.
SIMILARLY, THE DYES USED IN OUR CANVAS MAY ALSO BE MOBILE, PARTICULARLY WITH DARKER SHADES.
PLEASE USE DISCRETION WHEN WEARING LIGHTER COLOR CLOTHING.
Regardless of this, if you should not be 100% happy with your purchase, or need care or maintenance advice, please contact us at email@example.com and we will advise accordingly.
