The difference between ‘leather goods’ and ‘fine leather goods’ can be found in the edge work. Unfinished edges are much quicker and easier to produce, and can be accomplished by unskilled laborers. But, finished edges are the beautiful apex of our craft, and they will last for many many years. All of our edges are either hand skived, turned and stitched; or hand painted in the old world tradition. Not a single raw edge exists on any part of any item that we have ever made. This is a highly laborious and skilled expertise, especially with our deeply textured Bison leather. It is just one of the extra steps that we take to ensure our products exceed luxury standards and last for a lifetime.
Since 2008, Parabellum has been the only leather goods brand in the world to use technical ceramic hardware. The juxtaposition of our super smooth ceramic with our deeply textured Bison is both unique and beautiful. It is the ultimate combination of the best of the old and the promise of the new. All of our non ceramic hardware is custom made by master jewelers in Los Angeles. Our snaps and zippers are made in Europe, and they are the finest quality in the world.
