Want to order a custom leather jacket but are not sure what it is all about, then fear not because here are 5 badass reasons why custom leather is the right choice for you.
1. It connects to your personality
Ever get that feeling dreaded when a jacket doesn’t suit you?
Well, When working together my main priority is that I tap into your personality and bring that to life within a custom design. We talk about designs ideas, fabric colours, shape and size this is what leads me to get a feel on how to bring your unique style into the jacket with my design knowledge. Sometimes all it takes is to bring that style out of you and the rest is history.
2. It’s tailor-made to your measurements.
No more will you struggle with that feeling of ‘I can never find one to fit me properly’ because throughout the custom service I work with your measurements to create a leather that fits like a glove. I help you take measurements to then transform that into a pattern, from this a sample will be made and sent to make sure you are happy with the style a fit.
Once everything is checked you will then see your very own leather come to life.
3. It’s a handmade wearable piece of art.
Whether you’re going for a full-on cutout leather design or chic plain jacket I make sure to create a wearable lifetime investment piece that makes you feel like the ultimate luxe rebel. You get to experience something so special and positive rather than buy into mass-produced.
4. The fabrics-you can be sustainable and wear leather
There can be a lot of confusion around the sustainability of leather. Vegan PU can be championed as being more sustainable but that is not always the case as it can often be full of plastics — which is not cool and the longevity of a jacket in PU is about 6 months to a year which means 9times out of 10 it will end up in the landfill.
At Born to Thread I want to be 100% transparent with my products. I have spent many hours researching and sourcing leather fabrics to bring you the highest quality possible for longevity in my badass garments.
Yes, all of my jackets are made from 100% real leather but I have also made sure that the hides are sourced from an ethical leather merchant in Northampton UK called GH Leathers, who only use skins that are a by-product of the meat industry, meaning the farming priority is food and the hide is secondary.
This was my main priority when sourcing hides for my products made from leather.
5. It’s a unique service that takes time but is worth it in the end.
Yes custom may seem like a long and drawn-out process especially with the same day demand with mass produces products can offer, but this is different this is a service that connects to you, to tap into that inner badass and create alongside me a signature piece for your wardrobe not only made to fit you but in time will collect stories and be passed down through generations to keep that style and sentimental investment alive
A lot of people are shocked when they find out that my jackets are made from scratch, yes that’s right people all of it from the design, pattern cutting, cutting out of the fabric to the sewing the goddam thing up, Pretty badass right?
So after those 5 badass reasons on why custom is the right choice, are you ready to invest in your style and create a piece of wearable personalised work of art for yourself?
