The beauty of hand dyed products is that the dye highlights the beauty of the natural texture of the grain and markings on the hide. This allows for a very unique product - whether we make 2 or 200 of the same design and colour, each one will always be slightly different. #ilundileather #process #leatherstudio #handcraftedleather #handdyedleather
