To protect leather, use a stain and water-resistant spray safe for leather. Follow directions carefully to prevent damaging your piece. Test a small patch first. To spot clean, use a damp cloth to rub saddle soap into the leather and work soap into a light lather. Wipe away lather and air dry.

How It's Made

As they move through fields of coffee, wheat, and sorghum, Ethiopian farmers scan the ground for a very different harvest—artillery shells from former conflicts. Local craftsmen melt the shells down to create beautiful beads, then transport the beads to women in Addis Ababa who string them into beautiful accessories. Additionally, handmade leather styles empower marginalized and vulnerable youth living in the city by creating dignified employment opportunities. Their Artisans include former street youth who have been able to transform their lives through intensive training and education. The business harnesses locally sourced materials to create beautiful, high-quality products.
