For ages 6+ Leather 101 Full Grain, Top Grain, Genuine, and Bonded Leather Explanation
Simple explanation for ages 6+ of the different types of leather and how they work. This is not about the different types of tanning like vegetable or chrome or brain tanning, but just about the different grades. Note: Not all top grain leather is bad. It depends on how much of the grain (hair follicles) are still left after sanding or shaving. Some companies lightly buff the top of the full grain for effect, still leaving the scars, and some shave deep to get rid of the scars. In the beginning of this video, I accidentally called the fibers, grain. I was wrong and corrected it a minute or so later.

Flight Bag Briefcase - The Design | Saddleback Leather Co.
Inspired by old school Gladstone bags, this is Saddleback's take on a leather briefcase with a solid hinged opening. This is how they kept bags shut tight before zippers were invented. Also inspired by the flight bags carried by pilots, who need a bag that stays wide open for quick access in the tight quarters of a cockpit.

How to Tan Quality Leather and Avoid Bad Leather | Saddleback Leather Co.
Education is the best defense against low quality and that's why I want to show you how high quality leather is made. This is a behind the scenes, step by step, explanation of how the professionals tan leather, and how they tan it right. There are a lot of steps, that if not correctly followed, will produce low quality and even dangerous carcinogenic leather. Hope you enjoy. Note: the tannery just let me know that it is not accurate to infer that hot dogs are made from this meat, but rather dog type foods after a great refining process. And the fats are not used in the raw for a chaffing lubricant between the legs.or for a healing balm. And, they mentioned that there are a number of reasons why Chromium III could turn into cancerous Chromium VI and that it is a culmination of things rather than just that process. This is very rare and not a concern.

Saddleback Leather Review. An arm almost blown off and backpack
Nobody remembers the hunting trip where everything went exactly according to plan. Enter: Tracy, who had her left arm blown half-off in a freak hunting accident, and messed up her backpack strap in the process. It all hung together for 22 months on a single Saddleback thread - which is why we build all our stuff with the toughest single filament, marine-grade polyester thread we can find. What's your story? We wanna hear it. #SaddlebackStories The coolest thing about us is you.

At Abandoned African Amusement Park - Demo of Front Pocket Leather Briefcase
See more here: http://www.saddlebackleather.com/front-pocket-leather-briefcase The abandoned Rwandan amusement park was a cool place to explain the front pocket briefcase. Apparently, the land that the amusement park equipment was delivered to was sold and the owner of the rides just left it all in 2008. Strange how a lot of things were still in crates and bubble wrap as if it were left there only a year ago. And it's kind of right in the middle of the city, an unknown treasure.

Saddleback's Camera and Electronics Bag That We Call a Gadget Bag
Have you ever wondered why the owner's manuals for electronics say that you shouldn't subject your electronic piece (camera, lens etc.) to temps below or above certain levels? It's because the metal and glass and plastics all of the different components expand and contract at different rates and can damage the gear. This thick leather bag keeps the temperature in the safe levels far longer than any normal gear bag. Leather is a great insulator, especially when it's thick. Check out both sizes in 4 different colors at http://www.saddlebackleather.com/gadgetbag.

How to make a high quality mug and why you'll probably never own Saddleback Leather's
After years of searching for the perfect Saddleback mug, Dave finally decided to just design one himself. The final product is a collaboration with the master potter Keith Thompson, owner of Firehouse Pottery just across town here in Fort Worth, TX. Keith makes each Saddleback mug by himself, by hand. There's about 20 or so discrete processes involved in the creation of each mug, from measuring out the right sized hunk of clay, to forming it on the pottery wheel, to final touch ups of each finished mug. They're made in small batches over a 2 week period. There are quicker and easier ways to make mugs, but Keith isn't interested in that. And neither is Dave. The result is a beautiful hand-crafted mug, each slightly unique. Because of the time-consuming and labor-intensive process, Keith just isn't able to make too many of these things. Which is why you'll probably never own one. But it's nice to know they're out there.
