Made in Sweden from vegetable tanned leather
These boots are unique. Due to external factors such as where the cattle was brought up, how it lived, and the type of grass it ate, the colour and the structure of the leather may vary from one pair to another. These differences give each pair its own individual look.
True Swedish handicraft
We never thought about making shoes. The idea came to us when we talked to Kavat about using the excess leather and spillage from their production line to make leather patches for our dry jeans. But we fell in love with Kavat's line of ecologically produced shoes since they fit perfectly with our philosophy.

The leather in these shoes is vegetable tanned at Tärnsjö Garveri. They've been tanning leather using the same principle for 140 years. Tanning is a tough, manual labour from start to finish, but it also requires a lot of skill and experience.
No material is as honest like leather, and at Tärnsjö they prefer the leather to be as natural as possible. Some scars and beauty marks are left visible to make the leather more personal and unique, just like mother nature intended.
The shoes are produced by Swedish shoe manufacturer Kavat. They've been making shoes for four generations, and started their operations in Kumla back in 1945.
From the tanning process to the construction of the boots, this is true Swedish handicraft. Real manual labour, performed by real people who take pride in their work and do their utmost to create something beautiful.
Your shoes go where you go and they become a part of you. Therefore you should take care of them accordingly. Think of them as your own skin. You need to give them moisture from time to time or they will eventually dry out and the colour will fade.
