Ace Teams with Tanner Goods for Days of Heaven Bracelet
PALM SPRINGS, CA - Working with Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Tanner Goods made these limited edition Days of Heaven leather bracelets in Portland, Oregon from vegetable-tanned English Bridle American leather.
The small team of craftsmen at Tanner produce every piece by hand in their Portland studio. They use the same tools that have been put to work for decades manufacturing heritage leather goods. They've even been known to hunt down antique equipment to get the authentic results they're after.
All of their sewing is done by a heritage saddle maker who started in 1964, and he's been generous enough to pass along his knowledge and skill to the rest of the team.
People have adorned their wrists with leather since at least the ancient Egypt days, so we're glad to see this age-old craft being passed along.
The Ace x Tanner Goods leather bracelet sports a geometric diamonds relief pattern, chrome fastener and Ace Hotel & Swim Club Days of Heaven intaglio on the inside.
