Another Note!: These kits are cut from full grain natural vegetable tanned leather. There may be minor markings on the surface of your leather that were acquired during the life of the animal or the tanning process. However we will never send you anything with cracks, holes, or cuts.
ALSO! It is inevitable that the thread will pick up small amounts of soot from the laser cut holes when stitching. If you choosing a light color thread (white or natural) please be mindful of that. You can always take a q-tip or piece of string and run it through each hole to pick up any loose soot prior to stitching.
