Graf von Faber-Castell Epsom - Selected Italian calfskin is used for the leather accessories. Tough but supple, calfskin is a material that lends itself to fine crafting and is highly durable. On the smooth surface the natural grain is clearly visible.
To join two pieces of leather they are generally overlapped and then machine-stitched. In comparison, the accessories in the “Graf von Faber-Castell Collection” are “butt-jointed” and hand stitched using special, strong thread.
The greatest precision and skill are needed when using a thread of a contrasting colour. Every stitch shows up and each one must be perfect. Corrections are not possible for the needle hole would immediately be visible.
