Leatherpunk uses only the best full grain leather. The term 'full grain' means the upper most layer of skin, or epidermis, has been kept on the hide, with only the hair being removed. It's considered the highest quality form of leather and in addition to that, LP only uses the best parts of the hide. That means your leather garment will meet the highest standards, every time!
Leatherpunk makes each order from raw materials and components. Nothing is pre-made. The process involves a combination of hand working expertise and machine aided precision. When you purchase from Leatherpunk, your item is made just for you by Leatherpunk owner Matt Rezac.
When you first receive your new leather, it will be a bit stiff. This will subside over time, but you shouldn't bend or fold your leather excessively beyond its intended use, or you could damage the grain (the top layer of leather). To clean you leather, dampen a good quality paper towel with warm water and hand rub any debris stuck to the leather, wiping away excess moisture immediately. The dye used is oil based and therefore additional oil treatments are not recommended. For long term storage, keep out of direct sunlight and away from dust, for example a jewelry box. Avoid plastic bags or plastic storage bins.

Although it rarely happens, sometimes a snap fastener can break off. Leatherpunk will replace at no charge snaps that break, or other hardware failures. Screw-back spikes and other screw on hardware should be checked periodically. Leatherpunk will not replace lost hardware.
