Black Braided Nappa Leather

Black Braided Nappa Leather


Our braided Nappa leather has no competition, made from high-quality genuine sheepskin with a tight and consistent weave. Nappa leather is top-quality leather that undergoes a unique tanning process and is softer and more durable.

Another difference from the ordinary braided leather cord is the method of weaving. A typical leather cord is braided from the leather strips cut from the hide. Nappa leather cord is made by folding soft highest quality full-grain leather strips to make them sturdy and then braided to the cord. This provides a smooth edge to each strand and consistent colour throughout the cord.

Unlike other braided cords that is bumpy and uneven, our leather cord is perfect in both weave and consistency. This is a very durable and appealing material, providing an individual and authentic look. Also, as leather is an organic product, it is perfect for people with a metal intolerance.

Leather has played an essential role in the various cultural circles and epochs, particularly during eras where suitable alternatives had yet to be developed.

The manufacturing of leather cords has a long history. In the beginning, it was mainly used for simple tools, later for harnesses, chariots or machines that required drive belts. Not to mention the famous roman body armours (lorica), sandals (caliga) or army bags (loculus), which had all leather cords applied and were used to conquer the then known world.

From Indians of North America to Eskimos in the polar region was impossible to live without the leather. Almost every culture has used, relied on and benefited from leather.

Today, leather cords and leather laces are indispensable and primarily used in fashion goods, accessories, shoes, bags and jewellery such as leather bracelets.

Please note that all genuine leather will gradually achieve a lovely vintage patina. Patina appears when the leather changes due to ageing, but it is still attractive. A historic column with tiny cracks or an old wooden ship with many signs of ageing can still be beautiful - like an old wine - it becomes better over time. It's the same with leather.
