Will the leather change or scratch over time?
Our Horween leather is vegetable tanned and imbued with natural oils and waxes for the finest natural finish possible. The surface is never sprayed with synthetic sealants or paints in order to allow for a rich, lustrous patina to form as the owner uses the case. Because of the natural finish, the leather will scuff and mark, sometimes much easier than other cases. These markings blend into the leather over time to form the patina, but you should be aware that the surface needs to be taken care of. If you always want a perfect finish, this is not the case for you. But, if you are after the perfect authentic leather patina, this is absolutely the case for you. For best care, use quality leather conditioner.
How are our cases different from other leather cases?
The Horween leather used in our cases is made in the traditional style dating back to 1905. Most leathers use synthetic tanning chemicals, synthetic dyes, spray paints and spray sealants to make a "perfect" surface. We don't think modern leathers are perfect. After so many synthetic treatments, it is hardly leather at all. We love real, old style American leather.
Where can I attach a lanyard on Modern Leather Case?
There are two lanyard attachment points, both built into the reinforced speaker ports on the bottom edge of Modern Leather Case.
