Designed and made in the USA
Saddle stitching creates strong and precise stitching joining the leather by criss-crossing of threads.
The process has been used for making western horse saddles using a single thread.
Stitching, embossing and edge finishing are done by hand with traditional leather crafting.
Designed and crafted in the United States of America based on a saddlery heritage.
In western saddlery, layers of vegetable tanned cowhide are handstitched to create horse saddles, harness and tack. Such leather has a unique character and is made to survive the rigors of western ranch life. As leathermakers from Texas, we depend on the same saddlecrafting tradition to create DaVarg articles. Using finest full-grain vegetable leather, we craft them – one article at a time.
We created every feature to be simple with obvious functionality. From stitching to the embossed spartan logo, every design element is well thought out and carefully crafted.Unlike superfluously designed, mass produced synthetic products, the elegance and character of DaVarg leather articles are enhanced by the functional elements melded into full-grain leather with saddle-crafting.

The Spartan. Deep embossed into grain.
In saddle stitching, two needles criss cross a single thread to create precise durable stitches. Since we don't use sewing machines, we are able to use thicker threads to create stronger bonds. While such hand stitching takes more time, we use such traditional saddle-crafting methods for creating articles that are meant to last a lifetime.
From embossing logo to edge finishing a lot of attention is paid to ensure that every DaVarg article enhances the elegance and character of natural full-grain leather. For instance, the graphite finish on leather edges requires cleaning and rounding the leather edges, then giving two coating of a proprietary edge coating. To develop the graphite look another matte coating is applied by blending the edge to leather.
