NOW SOLD – Sorry these keyrings have now been sold and can no longer be ordered
One of our customers recently wanted us to make a teardrop Porsche keyring with the Porsche crest badge inlaid into the leather rather than hinged onto the keyfob.
So far, so good – we are able to bond the crest badge onto a backplate and inlay it into the leather having hand cut the aperture in the leather for the badge. A steady hand being required.
The customer then asked that we use a grained purple leather which would be particularly hard wearing !
Here is the result – with the Porsche crest badge inlaid into Horween Russia calf leather.
Horween are the famous US tannery who are able to supply this leather which is a modern version of the famous 200 year old Russia leather from a shipwreck which we have always supplied keyrings in ( see Russia leather keyrings) in the alphabetical list of makes in this website shop.
The customer was rather flattered when we asked if we could supply his choice of keyring as a regular item here in our website shop !
Why should a keyring have to conform to 50 year old ideas of what a classic leather keyring should look like ?
Here is a classic leather keyring with a passion made for a 21st Century motor car. 59/96 03/20
