Our OPUS ONE is a black + brown brindle hair-on hide leather bow tie. Luxurious hair-on cowhide with a soft suede reverse: weighty, rugged, fashionable. Laser cut in house for perfect crisp, modern lines. All hides are carefully selected for both fashion and durability – leather ties are meant to not only span the seasons, but decades. Each is one of a kind, no two leathers are ever exactly alike.
In house laser cutting, from the pattern drafting to the making the computer and vector file talk to the laser, to watching it cut, to washing and cleaning the edges and sewing the center seam – every step from start to finish. This is not farmed out to some anonymous laser shop.
Please note: “Pony hair” and “pony fur” are generic terms for hair-on hide in the fashion industry – it is cow or calf leather that has not had the hair removed – also known as haircalf. Absolutely no ponies involved! We realize leather is not for everyone, however our cowhides are sourced from the meat industry, if you believe in “nose-to-tail” eating and living, this is the most ethically sourced type of leather you can find.
