The cover of this piece is handmade from 100% full grain, uncoloured vegetable tanned leather. This is the most durable leather, retains the original grain which is highlighted by Fiona's hand dyeing. Each hand finished piece has a unique character and texture and over time develops a softer touch and patina which can not be imitated.
Hand finished leather should not be left in the sun or allowed to dry out. A natural wax or oil based leather conditioner applied a few times a year, will protect and enhance the colour and shine of your piece.
What is Genuine Leather?
Why Hand Finished Leather?
Can I have more than 12 letters (including spaces) engraved?
The Black over Brass Nameplate provided as "standard" allows for 12 letters (including spaces) to be engraved.
If you would like more lines of engraving, or your company logo, please Contact Fiona. Additional charges will apply.
Can I have a different leather colour?
Yes, please Contact Me. If you wish to see WIP photos an additional admin fee of $10 applies.
Can you make it faster than completion time on the site?
The black on brass nameplates are engraved by a specialist engraver, and the speed at which they can engraved plate orders are out of my control. Also, time needs to be allowed for the plate to be couriered from the engraver to Sparrowhawk. Also, hand dyeing processes take time to dry and cure.
If you require the piece faster than my making time, I can prepare a personalised Gift Certificate with you message and details of the piece you have ordered, plus expected delivery date. If you would like the person to be able to specify their own piece, I can accommodate this in a Gift Certificate too. Please Contact Fiona to arrange.
