The leather accessories program introduced by GANT Rugger for 2012 is produced by Tärnsjö Tannery; a small family owned company situated 2 hours north of Stockholm, Sweden. Tärnsjö is one of very few remaining tanneries in Europe where the process is still 100% organic and based on traditions and techniques going back to 1873. For the first 25 years, the company was run only by 2 people and in the early 1900s the company focused on equestrian equipment for local farmers. Tärnsjö is considered as one f the finest leather producers in the world among others supply renowned Brooks with saddle material, as well as a number of French Haute Couture brands with their finest leather for bags and accessories. The unique process, which has basically stayed the same for 250 years, ensures the highest quality possible and leather that will age and wear beautifully. Every piece is handmade within the tannery's small manufacturing set up. As they say, - We'd rather make 15 pieces and pour our heart in every single one, than produce 1500 and feel nothing. The program consists of a laptop cover, a mobile cover and a belt. `all products are offered in natural, un-dyed leather as well as a deep rich cognac shade. If you live in Holland you have to wait till September or when you can't wait hop on a plane to New York and go to a Gant Rugger Store.
