Our leather products are made exclusively from traditionally crafted and vegetable-tanned full-grain cowhide. We journey to Tuscany for our saddle leather, which retains its natural colour and is otherwise untreated and raw.
The exclusive legacy of each hide is reflected in the natural creases and scuffs, which make each product absolutely unique. This is underlined by the different colour nuances of each individual piece, which can be attributed to the conscious decision to refrain from using opaque dyes. This allows the leather to develop its own patina over time and become more beautiful with each use.
The raw edges that are left after stamping the leather are then dyed and polished in an elaborate process. This is done by the meticulous hand-application of a special dye from Italy. After drying, the colour layer is polished and the process is repeated several times to seal the edges. Along with the refined surface of the leather. This creates a special look. Legendär’s leather goods are produced in a small leather manufactory near Sousse in Tunisia.
It was here where we found individuals who still uphold generations of this region’s cultural heritage and possess rare skills in quality leather crafting. They had been trained years before, by German bookbinders and fine bag-makers. They apply their knowledge of traditional crafting techniques and artisanry together with the skilled use of precision instruments and machines from Germany. Legendär creates products with contemporary design and generations of finest Maghrebi leather craftsmanship.
