HOW IS THE QUALITY OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
All Anthony Edward materials are carefully chosen for you.
Our items are made from full grain aniline dyed leather which means no pigment is used to conceal natural defects in the leather and tanned using vegetable extracts, which gives the leather a full hand and the ability to age gracefully. Anthony Edward is deliberately using leather, which has been through as few chemical processes as possible in accordance with Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) http://ec.europa.eu/environment/chemicals/reach/reach_en.htm
Anthony Edward uses the entire grain of the hide, preserving as much of the material’s strength and character as possible. Anthony Edward chooses the limited number of select hides that pass our quality inspection processes. With our craftsmanship and experience, we always guarantee that your leather goods are created to last a lifetime.
HOW TO CARE FOR MY ANTHONY EDWARD PRODUCTS?
Just like all long-lasting luxury products, Anthony Edward leather goods need care to age gracefully.
To ensure many years of service and beauty, we recommend polishing your product with wax or leather balm. The leather will be softer and retain the luster it deserves.
WHAT DOES FULL GRAIN MEAN?
Full Grain refers to where on the cow’s hide the leather was made from. Specifically, what layer it is. Cowhide can be made into leather that is up to 1/2 inch thick. Full Grain is the uppermost layer. The closer you get to the surface layer of the leather (the part that faced storms, barbed wire fences, rocks and hail), the tougher it is.
Leather is basically trillions of interwoven fibers. Those fibers are smaller and extremely densely packed at the surface and they get looser and looser the deeper down you go. Full Grain is the top layer, the strongest and the most durable cut you can buy.
MY PRODUCT HAS A MARK ON IT?
This is quite possible, markings, scars, bug bites, and ranch brands are actually a testament to the authenticity of Full Grain Leather. Since Full Grain leather is the uppermost layer of the cow’s hide, it was exposed to the elements during the cow’s lifetime. Whatever scars the cow received will be evident on the leather. Typically, these markings are very small and some might say they add character and personality to the piece.
No marking will ever degrade the quality and longevity of the piece. Most people are only used to seeing ‘perfect’ looking leather goods that are mass produced. There are two reasons for this. One, the manufacturer is using ‘Top Grain’ leather, which is basically leather that has had the top layer sanded off to remove any markings (this significantly degrades the durability).
Or two, they are using ‘Genuine’ or ‘Bonded’ leather, which is a very low grade of leather and comes from a low layer of the hide that is basically a waste product. Bonded leather similarly is ground up leather pressed into sheets using glue and wont retain any natural markings at all.
HOW WILL MY ANTHONY EDWARD PRODUCT AGE?
Vegetable Tanned leather is the only type of leather that looks even better as it ages. This type of leather will absorb sun rays, oils from your skin, rubbing in your pocket and every surface that it touches. Over time a unique and dark ‘patina’ will continue to develop.
WHERE ARE YOUR PRODUCTS MADE?
All of our products are made in our factory located in Chennai, India. This factory was opened with funding from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, and is specialized in high-end leather.
The factory is a family business, run by Noor, he’s wife Anjum and Noor´s brother Zafarul. It employs about 140 people and over 30 % of their production output is for Anthony Edward.

MY ORDER IS SENT OUTSIDE OF THE EU
All prices displayed on Anthony Edward’s website (www.anthonyedward.com) include VAT in accordance with applicable law.
