The Doctordeg factory is located in the center of Stockholm and serves both as a studio and home. The production methods are the simplest possible and most of the work is done with help of hand tools and lots of patience. Leather bags and other small leather goods is sewn by hand with saddle stitch. The thread used is braided and waxed polyester fiber, among the strongest available. Doctordeg retrieves all their leather from Tärnsjö Tannery in Northern Uppland, one of the few remaining tanneries in Sweden, which is known for its environmentally friendly and natural methods for leather processing. The selected canvas are 100 percent cotton and the fabric is waxed by hand with a mixture of natural beeswax and paraffin.
Simple engineering at it’s best.
