Full Grain Leather, Genuine Mayan Textile
Over time and with use, the leather will assume a unique patina. If desired, condition with mineral oil or beeswax leather conditioner.
This leather piece with tipico mayan accents is meant to be passed on to future generations.
Take a piece of Guatemalan history and tradition wherever you go with this beautiful, elaborate Luggage Tag with Mayan Accent. Attach to your suitcase or carry-on, and travel with style and pride. Be ready to tell people who compliment your luggage tag about the story of Mayan textiles, a material that became the lifestream of Guatemala. Durable in design and intricately handmade, this makes a fantastic, lifelong item.
The Mayan textiles represent the artistic and religious expressions through clothing and other textile arts of the Maya people in Mexico and Central America. This ancient art derives from the practice of spinning loose cotton fibers using spindles, dyed using natural colors extracted from colorful plants and flowers. When dry, the cotton is then woven into intricate, beautiful designs. Many designs used in clothing represent the indigenous populations' communities, giving them a sense of identity and a feeling of home. The Mayan textiles that we use originate in Pastores, Guatemala, lovingly handcrafted by the local men and women of the town.
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.
A quality piece with a stunning combination of fine leather, a well made textile, and great workmanship. I have been extremely pleased with everything I have purchased from Hide and Drink.
Fantastic! That pretty much sums up this Barber Tool Roll in one word. The leather, the workmanship, even the quality of the snaps, zippers and rivets used are the best I've seen. I don't give a fat rats hinder parts where it's made, I just want the quality this roll has. I'll not be buying my leather bags, rolls, etc. anywhere else from now on. I use this as a tool roll for my motorcycle and it's perfect. The tools for motorcycles are not anywhere near as big as needed for cars so this roll works great for that. The only thing different I would like to see would be a roll made using the full grain leather instead of the suede. Keep up the good work guys!
I purchased this for a small gift and it was perfect! Fits great onto the skillet handle and arrived quickly.
Sturdy, beautiful and does the job!
I bought this item for my husband for our anniversary. It is a quality piece that he loves! It holds his 15" work computer, and it is really sturdy. The inside has nice canvas that feels very durable. We have a few things from Hide and Drink and we have been very pleased with each purchase.
Bought this product for myself. I prefer paper and pencil to cell phone apps. Hide and Drink have a great product. I get a lot of compliments on the quality and look. I would recommend for yourself and as a great gift.
OK, I am a bag junkie. This thing rocks. A bit smaller than I had imagined, but quite mighty and sturdy. Some internal color variations, which only add to it's looks. It fits into my Vespa's top case, and is just right for my uses. Thanks H&D!
I have this bag in the bourbon brown leather. It's well made and is a great size for toiletries or medications, office-y things like pens, or general stuff you'd want to store in a pouch to keep your bag tidy (keys, wallet, cords). I've gotten compliments on it. I've given several as gifts, too, and the recipients love the bag too.
Clutch is super cute, feels well-made and holds everything you need!
This clutch is perfect. Simple design, quality leather, and beautiful color. It holds all of my essentials, and I just love it.
This canvas notebook case is very nice! I have several canvas items from Hide & Drink and every single one is very well made and durable. This case looks great and keeps my note pad protected very well. I recently left it out on the boat and it got wet, but kept everything inside dry. It's a great addition to have with other Hide & Drink products, and would be a great gift as well. Very nice item!
The triangle Dopp kit is as advertised. The materials are first rate and I use it to corral my various cords and cables.
I wanted just one leather bookmark. For a great price I got three very well made leather bookmarks. Great job!
I got this bucket bag to carry random stuff like my coffee, mugs, and press. It's awesome for that and I must say that it is very well made. I got really happy when I decided to fill it with ice and beer at the ranch! Very versatile bag and it looks great too. Hide & Drink makes excellent products and if you're looking for a good bag, give this a try.
Used this apron to do set-up for a 100 Camper retreat. Lots of hauling, cleaning, etc. I am a dude, and felt very stylish with this apron on. Got several compliments, as well as second looks. Just got home from the trip, not quite sure how to wash it, but it doesn't seem dirty. Very rugged. Get it.
I like the way this hot pad looks.....both durable and classy. I feel that this hot pad won't begin to look shabby and stained like cloth ones do over time, nor does it look as casual as the silicone hot pads. This leather one will look much nicer when setting a table with guests. I like that it coordinates with the leather handle grip I have for my cast iron skillet as well. Glad I bought one for each of my daughters as well!
This razor cover is awesome! It protects your razor very well and it looks great. Every time I open my shave kit it smells like fresh leather! I would highly recommend this product if you're looking for a nice cover for your razor. Hide & Drink makes great products.
Bought this as a gift and he loves it!!! Said it's the best one he has ever seen /had!
The feel and the look of this mouse pad is incredible! I love it and I will cherish it for a loooooong time!!
I use this to hold a few flash drives. It works perfect to hold small items and look really stylish. It matches a lot of other H&D items that I have purchased in the past and use on a daily basis. Always high quality products.
This is a quality moleskin journal cover. Love the look and feel of the leather. Will match the other leather products I use. Will only get better with time.
This was a Birthday gift from my son. He knows I enjoy gifts that are different from what everyone else has. The rose is stunningly beautiful
I've been using this apron at my bartending gig for a couple months now. It stands up to the abuse of unfolded corkscrews and rogue bottlecaps. Check presenters fit in effortlessly and guests asked about it all the time.
I got these for myself and my husband to use when we travel and they fit our phone cords perfectly. The leather is very soft and the snap closures definitely secure. It will be nice to pull cords out of the bag with them all together rather than wrapped around other items. I also love the quirkiness of the cat shape!! :-)
I bought this for my husband as an accompaniment to the triangle dopp kit. It will be wonderful to reach into the bag for the necessary items without worry about getting cut! The cover fits snugly over his razor but the type of clasp is very secure and I believe will hold well. I can't wait for our travels to begin!
I purchased this triangle dopp kit for my husband as I felt it was time for us to step up our sophistication as we are now in a position to do some traveling. He loves it! The size is perfect for the few items that a man needs when traveling without being too much. The suede leather is sumptuous to the touch and looks lovely. The quality of the overall product is of the highest craftsmanship.
Unique gift for the avid reader who "has everything".... I will be ordering a few more as they are a perfect gift!
I bought 3 to give as gifts and they were a huge hit! I love that I can always count on Hide and Drink for some really interesting gifts! THANK YOU!
I love this cover. Keeps my notebooks intact while looking real classy.
Bag could be a bit bigger but, otherwise, amazing quality -- as I've come to expect from H&D. Will definitely be ordering again.
I do a lot of cooking outside, especially at the ranch. I got this firewood bag to make it easier to gather small to medium size pieces of mesquite and oak to make a quick fire. I was very impressed when I got this bag. First of all, the stitching and the leather is very good. What is really impressive is how sturdy and rugged the canvas is on this carrier. I'm talking extremely durable! Aside from being durable, this bag looks really nice. I didn't even get it for the looks and I was very impressed with how nice the carrier is. I'm always just blown away with the quality level of the products from Hide & Drink. If you need a serious bag for carrying wood, or just something really good looking to have by your fire place, this carrier is what you're looking for. You won't be disappointed.
I got this strap to secure my Nikon P900. Let me just say that I am not disappointed at all! The quality of the strap is excellent and the stitching/color looks awesome. It is very sturdy and very comfortable to wear. I've never been disappointed with any of the products from Hide & Drink and this camera strap is better than I expected. If you're looking for a really nice shoulder strap for your camera, you should give this one a try.
Love this collar! Also bought the leash to match it! Both are great quality and make my puppy look so handsome. I get many compliments every time we are in public! I just wish it came in just blue so it was more masculine but I still love it!
i use this to keep all the little stuff contained in my kids go bag. crayons. notebook. bandaids. anything. i have a feeling i may be stealing it to use as a makeup bag though : ) the zipper was a little sticky but i just ran a candle stick over it and it's great now
my husband and i would make great infomercial people. we're always digging in a drawer or dopp kit and nicking ourselves on a razor. minus the overly dramatic response. this was a happy tuesday gift for my husband and it's perfect. snug fit and sturdy snap for our dollar shave club handle and makes the space it's in smell good. can't lose.
i keep this sweet smelling and very sturdy piggy bank in the cup holder of my car to keep random change in one spot. i love it. fits perfectly and i get many compliments on it. it also makes the car smell good. bonus.
