All products made in Fall River, Massachusetts at their workshop by a highly skilled team. The pride of creating handmade products of unparalleled quality is distinguishable. Most noteworthy only using the finest leathers, hardware, and workmanship. The result is a collection that is recognisable to even the untrained eye as being of superb quality.
All Frank Clegg pieces are made from hand-selected French hides, custom tanned for them. The painstaking process of vegetable tanning takes 120 individual steps. But the result shows a perfected finish and colour penetration. Frank Clegg and his sons are personally involved in the process and visit Europe regularly. Their fixation for honesty and quality is what drives them to produce the world’s finest bags and briefcases. Down below you find the different types of leather qualities being used in Frank Clegg’s work.
Harness Belting Leather
This exceptional leather has a firm, slightly glossy finish that softens with age and usage and will develop a unique and cherished patina. Extra fat liqueurs are added during the conditioning process. This creates a smooth surface and beautiful appearance that improves with age.
Smooth Tumbled Leather
This leather is gently tumbled to give it a distinctively soft and relaxed hand. At the same time, it remains durable and easily standing up to daily use. These natural leathers are treated with only a soft wax finish and will last a lifetime.
Shrunken Grain Leather
A signature material that has become a Frank Clegg speciality. This unique leather is heavily shrunken, producing a dramatic, textured effect. Only skins with significant character are chosen for this special process. Leathers selected for this treatment also tend to have more range marks. Not defects, these unique markings add to the character of the leather.
