Our partners at SLATE COLLECTION, command a higher quality product, a natural product that shows the real leather. -- Pete Hendrickson, S.B. Foot Company
S.B. Foot Tanning Co. has been providing some of the highest-quality American made leather for over 100 years. As the second oldest tannery in the U.S.A., S.B. Foot Tanning Co. has a rich history of providing some of the highest quality American made leather available. Based in Red Wing, Minnesota, they ensure leather quality from beginning to end. It starts with Nebraska ranchers who closely monitor the source hides and ends with their Master Tanners, who employ time-honored production techniques. Leather from S.B. Foot Tanning Co. is built to last, sure to age gracefully, and built to take on your legacy.
Softline Brand Partners is one of the most highly-regarded designers and producers of leather goods in the U.S.A. Based out of their Minnesota workshop, Softline Brand Partners employ time-honored techniques, exacting standards, and precise attention to detail. The result is some of the finest domestically-made soft goods in the market. The proud artisans at Softline Brand Partners recognize that when it comes to leather, the end user is not always the first user. With that in mind, they craft top-tier products with durability, style, and reliability that lasts.
Exceptional, full-grain American leather is the foundation and inspiration for our craft. The natural grain and surface of each hide lends a distinct personality to the products we make, but use is what brings them to life. Over time, each SLATE COLLECTION™ bag and accessory accumulates marks that are as unique to each owner as a fingerprint. This patina enhances the character of each item and reflects who you are. It becomes a signature, an emblem of your style, made more distinct over time. To protect and care for your leather, use nothing but a soft damp cloth.
