MORGANESQ. The Man.
The art of turning leather into beautiful tactile items can be traced back three family generation to the Ludlow area.
Still continued today in the time old tradition of Hand Made and Finished in the Shrewsbury area.
The MORGANESQ pen case.
The whole process from beginning to end is hand made. From the placing initial placing of the templates onto the uncut leather, to the final buffing.
The templates are marked out with an awl and then cut.
The relevant parts are placed together ready for the time honoured traditional method of saddle stitching. All stitched by hand using two harness needles, one on either end of a single length of thread.
This incredibly durable thread is used throughout the Leather industry as well by the sail makers who stitch the sales for the round the world yachtsmen.
After stitching the edges are bevelled and burnished to give a rounded profile, once achieved then finished with a Fiebing's Edge Knott to seal in the loose ends.
Bee's wax is then applied before the final edge burnishing.
Once checked the whole case is fed and polished using carnauba Cream.
These cases are made to last and will age in a way that only the very finest of leather's will.
Both the Double cases will accept your favourite matching Pen and Pencil Set. Wether they are a slim or full size set, the two cases will accommodate both.
The Slim case is especially good if you only carry and use a mechanical pencils.
