Vegetable-tanning is the ancient, traditional method for producing beautiful, malleable leather. This technique is slow fashion in motion and uses natural resources and artisanal skill to turn hide into a soft, workable material.
No harmful chemicals or machinery is used to produce our leather.
Lost Little One - Made in Morocco
Lost Little One leather bags and accessories are crafted using veg-tanned goat & cow hide, sourced from the ancient tannery in Marrakech. Each skin is different, with unique markings. These unique markings and variations in the skin can be noticed on the lighter tones of leather (tan & vintage brown). These characteristics show the raw, natural quality of hand worked leather.
Lost Little One leather will change and evolve with every use, the lighter shades will darken slightly and your accessories will form a unique patina.
Our accessories crafted using veg-tanned buttery soft, yet durable goats leather will continue soften and distress. With prologued use a unique patina will form and your piece will transform for years to come, moulding to you and the way that you use it.
Our cow hide accessories are crafted using a much thicker, structured leather. The veg-tanned leather will change over time and darken slightly.
OĦTI - Made in Melbourne
OĦTI uses vegetable tanned crust kangaroo leather because of its supple yet strong quality. Our leather is sourced from wild kangaroos, bearing beautiful naturally occurring 'bush scars' reminiscent of the Australian outback. Every skin we use is unique, with variations in colour and markings, making every OĦTI design one of a kind.
Created to age like a fine wine. OĦTI leather is lightweight, strong & flexible. With each use your new leather accessory will begin to soften, a patina will form, moulding and changing to you. New creases will appear and your piece will transform to become uniquely yours.
Belts & Straps
All OĦTI leather belts and straps are made using premium veg-tanned Italian double butt leather
Just like our skin, what you do to your leather will determine how it looks and ages. The lighter tones will darken over time and your leather will change with use. We suggest that you keep your leather clean by wiping it down with dry cloth to remove any buildup of dust and dirt and giving it a deep clean with a leather cleaner every few months and tending to any stains immediately.
Your new leather can begin to look dry and dull with time. To give it a boost of moisture and shine, apply a leather conditioner every few months. Avoid all contact with water, however in the case that your leather does get wet, do NOT use a hairdryer or any hot air tools to dry it. This will cause the skin to dry out and wrinkle. Deal with any water spills by simply allowing the leather to dry naturally. Never leave your leather laying in the sun or exposed to the elements.
Vegetable-tanned leather is made to last and to get better with age. Colour fading or darkening, marking and stretching as a result of regular usage add to the character of veg-tanned leather. The colour of your leather accessory may vary on arrival, due to the nature of vegetable tanning process the colours are not uniform. We ask you use our online images as a reference only as each skin is different, with unique markings, scars and colour variances, these characteristics show the natural quality of hand worked leather.
Lost Little One bag's are lined with faux suede for a soft touch, if your lining becomes dirty see your local dry cleaner for professional advice.
