I’ve talked before about AHALife and what a cool company it is. I still delight in seeing what interesting product they feature everyday. Today when I saw “Reindeer Leather” in my email I thought my eye had to be playing tricks on me!
No tricks, that’s a bark-tanned reindeer leather apron sold in an extremely limited edition (only 30 will be made) from Böle, a fourth generation tannery and saddle maker in Sweden. Apparently reindeer skin is strong, lightweight and incredibly durable and “bark-tanned” means the leather is cured in vats filled with spruce bark for nearly a year.
While quite cool and unique, at $840 it won’t be this year’s “perfect Father’s Day present”!
