Haven't sourced much material lately, but when I came across some suede, I had to give it a go! I'm not sure how it'll hold up over time, but I am extremely happy with the comfort right now.
It's about 4mm thick, and I'll be finishing the sides with some edge kote when I can get my hands on it. The keeper floats and bears my signature. :)
Let me know your thoughts! I was considering stitching down the sides, but the simplicity of it is growing in me. What do you think?
