Leather check-in, an essential guide.

Leather check-in, an essential guide.

By Dan

The first step in a pair of our shoes happens when the material first arrives to our factory. Each hide is unrolled and inspected for color, pull up, and imperfections like stretch marks, bug bites, brands, and tears. This is of utmost importance because of the need for near perfect pattern cuts on our shoes. If we accept a bad hide, we will often only yeild a pair or two, which is something we obviously avoid. 

Acceptence is performed by our cutter, which is one of the most important roles in the factory. The person who is cutting the leather for a pair knows how, why, and what they need and can expect from a hide. Their priority is yeild and quality, which is why they are the right person for the job.
