New England Leather Accessories Inc. uses several different varieties of leather to craft our SparePockets

      Most of our sparepockets are crafted from Full Grain cowhide. Full grain leather is leather that has not been buffed or sanded, leaving the beautiful natural texture of the hide.

      The Clip-on Cell Phone Case and PhoneDangleTM are made from SaddlehideTM, a luxurious full grain cowhide which can be made from only the finest 5% of all cow skins. It undergoes a vegetable tanning process, and has a slightly shiny finish from wax and hot ironing. The surface is fragile like the finest analine died leathers and, over time, it will develop a beautiful patina.

      The SparepocketTM Glasses & Pen Case is made from Top Grain Cowhide, a genuine leather which has been buffed and coated to produce a smooth, scratch resistant finish. It is thinner and more pliable than SaddlehideTM, but tries to achieve a similar look.
