Character Traits: Variations in Natural Leather

NO TWO HIDES ARE ALIKE

With every order, the Traverse craftsman starts with the raw ingredients – a piece of leather and a brand logo.

But instead of working with detailed blueprints, the master crafts his work one stitch and cut at a time. Just enough

structure to provide a template while still leaving room for improvisation and creativity. The result is not only

the longest lasting promotion you’ve ever seen, but one which elicits a visceral response above and beyond mere function.

Traverse has emerged as more than a great promotional product – it’s an emotional charge to the senses.

 

CHARACTER TRAITS

Variations that are found in natural leather make for a truly unique promotional product. Traverse leather goods elicit a

response each time they are shared and used. It’s a piece that will be kept and integrated into your life for years to come.

Learn more about each leather characteristic below.

WRINKLES

When an extra thick piece of leather is bent back on itself naturally, it adds character that creates dimension. It’s true what they say, a wrinkle merely indicates where a smile has been.

SCARS

These are heralded events in the lives of our cows and bulls – a tussle with the tough mesquite bushes, a battle, a run through the barbed wire fence. Typically these will surface as long thin black lines. The appropriate response is a nod of respect for a fight well fought.

STRETCH MARKS

These serve as an indication of life. Stretch marks occur with extremely fast growth or living large and in charge. Either way it means this animal was at the top of the metaphorical food chain. Share the glory and the gluttony.

CALLOUSES

And you thought the raised teats on a Longhorn were just for good looks? Callouses provide a great guard that limits scrapes and cuts as the cow walks through fields of prickly cacti. Callouses are the result of these life patterns, rubbing that itchy spot with your horn or sleeping on your side. See? Habits do make a difference. They will appear as small, circular, smooth markings.

INSECT BITES

These are visible signs that we’re not the only ones who battle tiny jaws, stingers and suckers. They may appear as tiny black or off-colored spots. Stand in stoic appreciation of the creature who was unable to slap a mosquito with its hoof.

VEINS

One of the key marking of a well marbled leather hide are veins. Note to be confused with a blood pumping body builder caught in a Vesuvius moment. Hmmm…Vesuvius Veins. It sounds like an iconic rock band or a really nice piece of leather.

Traverse: Fueld Films Story

Embark on a Fueld Films Journey

Recently, a distributor customer of ours called seeking unique promotional items for a client that truly embodied our craftsman mantra and literally does no other type of advertising except for promotional items. We wanted to tell their story. See first hand the power of promo products on set with Fueld Films.

“It’s kind of odd, but we don’t do any advertising. The only kind of marketing we do is promotional products. That’s it.”

Brady, Fueld Films

Don’t just live life, Traverse it.

With every order, the Traverse craftsman starts with the raw ingredients. A piece of leather and a brand logo. But instead of working with detailed blueprints, the master is able to craft his work one stitch and cut at a time. Just enough structure to provide a template while still leaving room for improvisation and creativity. The result is not only the longest lasting promotion you’ve ever seen but one which will elicit a visceral response above and beyond the mere function of the leather good itself. A smart brand wants its reputation to be associated with multiple fibers of a quality experience. Traverse has emerged as more than a great promotional product – it’s an emotional charge to the senses.

A few months ago, a distributor customer of ours called seeking a unique promotional item for a client that truly embodied our craftsman mantra we not only made her a beautiful leather purse and notebook which instantly became incorporated into her brand’s daily workflow, but we also made a film to tell the story.

What we found has implications for the entire promotional industry. If you think about it, every brand has a story. And for those whose story is dedication to being the innovators, the disruptors and the leaders in their category – this is what being a craftsman is all about. This is the essence of what it means to TRAVERSE life. By taking the path that leads to the unknown is risky but it’s the only way to truly break new ground. Brands who understand this inherently surround themselves with products that stand for the same thing. Traverse leather goods elicit a response each time they are shared and used. It’s a piece that will be kept and integrated into your life for years to come.

We invite you to explore our new Traverse leather line which includes journals, notebooks, wallets, accessories and more.

Don’t just live life, Traverse it.
