Frequently Asked Questions


How is my product crafted?

Everything is done by hand and with hand-tools. From cutting the leather to punching holes for the thread to finish the edges. Not a single power machine is being used in the process, making it a truly handmade product, each unique on its own.

How long does it usually take for my item to be made?

Since every item is handmade specifically for you, it can take up to two weeks for your product to be crafted. If it is part of our Ready to Ship section, it will usually be shipped out the next day.

Custom orders may take longer depending on the request and leather availability. So please get in touch via hello@deardagger.com if you are on a deadline!

Where does the leather come from?

We exclusively use vegetable tanned leather, most of it comes from tanneries that are part of The Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium located in the Tuscany of Italy.

In addition to that, we also use vegetable tanned leathers from the United States, specifically the ones of the tannery Wickett & Craig in Pennsylvania.

What is vegetable-tanned leather?

Vegetable-tanned leather has a long history and is the most traditional form of tanning leather. The leather is not processed with chemicals but rather with natural materials such as tree bark, thus making the most eco-friendly option when it comes to leathers.

By only using tanneries that are part of the Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium, we can guarantee the highest quality materials upheld by century-old traditions and standards.
