"Quality products are borne by the use of quality materials."
It all starts with sourcing. After five generations in the leather industry, we know what will last
and what won't. That's why we get our leather from storied, reputable US tanneries that carefully
vegetable tan their hides. Chemical free, this process is more labor-intensive than modern
tanning techniques, but we at Todder believe it makes the best product. That's why we use it.Our Tanneries:
Hermann Oak in St. Louis, Missouri // Est. 1881
Wickett & Craig in Curwensville, Pennsylvania // Est. 1867
Horween in Chicago, Illinois // Est. 1905
The highly durable waxed thread gracing many of our products comes from our friends
at Maine Thread Company in Lewiston, Maine. Boasting over 101 uses for their product
ranging from taxidermy to replica sailing ships, their thread is the real deal and that’s
why we use it at Todder.
SOLID BRASS HARDWARE
Trustworthy hardware is difficult to come by these days. How do we know? We have
searched long and hard to find the most robust hardware that meets Todder's high
standards. Finally finding a process that creates products with real longevity and
durability, we were elated to discover sand casting. This seldom used, complex artisanal
technique is both labor and time intensive, but holding quality above all else, we at
Todder believe it's worth it.
