PRODUCTION & DESIGN

Do your bit to save the environment, and in style with this full grain leather Coffee and Tea Sleeve! This rustic piece will allow you to drink your favorite hot beverage on the go and look sophisticated and unique, too. It keeps your drink warm and it's easy to fold up and put away when you're finished.

Saving the environment is high on our list of priorities, and with this Coffee and Tea Sleeve, you can do your bit. In 2011, nearly 3 billion coffee cup sleeves were produced just in the United States, the waste caused is unimaginable. With this fine leather sleeve you can help the cause each time you need your caffeine hit.

The flesh side of the soft leather is first stained with natural drab tone and finished with our proprietary beeswax conditioner. Our unique treatment not only helps the leather to retain its shape without the aid synthetic stabilizers, it also eliminates the need for a lining (often the first to tear) offering a natural and durable look.

The leather we use, originating from our well established supplier Compiel, is nothing but Full Grain Leather, and if you don't know what that is, then make sure you're sitting comfortably. There are 4 types of leather, and they differ in quality. You have Full Grain Leather, Top Grain Leather, Genuine Leather and Bonded Leather.

We'll start with Bonded Leather. It's more of an insult to call Bonded Leather a leather. It's basically lots of different parts of leather glued and pressed together to make one piece. It's cheap, not at all durable and it will fall apart within weeks. In short, it's no good and we are completely against it.

Genuine Leather is in third place in the running, and is the layer of the hide that remains after the top is taken off for the better quality leathers. This surface can often be given a makeover with a finish, sometimes a spray paint that can give it the look of a better quality. Not something that happens in our house. Don't settle for this, you can do better.

Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade that you'll find. A leather taken from the top layer of the hide that is treated, sanded and refined. It's a good quality leather, but not good enough for Hide and Drink. You can still do better, though, go one more step higher.

Full Grain Leather is the best you can get when it comes to leather, there's no competition here, and Hide and Drink is its biggest fan. Full Grain Leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and has all of the grain, hence its name. It's the best leather than you can buy, and the only leather that we use. You can stop looking now, you've found the cream of the crop.

The tanning process is something that we take pride in. Our rustic leather is created through removing the hair, extracting the moisture, taking out the oils and, of course, the natural preservatives. The leather is placed in a large container filled with new oils, coloring and preservatives, and there it takes on its new color and thus its new personality. The finishing process consists of pressing the leather with heated plates, hung up to dry and sprayed and finished with a sealer. Finally it is pressed once more and then ready for its transformation, in which it is carefully handcrafted by the diligent locals of Pastores, Guatemala, where our workshop is located.

Amazingly great products

I have purchased several items from your company and have loved each of them. The quality of leather is top notch, the stitching is even and secure, as well as having sturdy snaps, zippers, and grommets. I will continue to order your products, thank you.

Fantastic sleeve for my KeepCup!

I use a KeepCup with a Hide and Drink leather sleeve. It makes the KeepCup look instantly classier; the Hide and Drink Sleeve is much better looking than the KeepCup cork or plastic sleeve. The Hide and Drink/KeepCup combo is my favorite way to drink coffee; it feels right and it looks good. I get all the compliments!
