This has a huge impact on how we think about the waste from each animal, and how we can put it to better use. This is just one of the reasons we are delighted to announce that we now produce a range of products made from premium quality, hand-worked Dexter leather.
In designing our Dexter leather range, we focused on products which we felt reflected the ethos of our brand. We wanted to reflect the Dexter’s Irish origin; their local heritage; the culture of the area; and the hard-working nature of both the breed and the people who have raised them over the years. The results include beautiful hand-crafted and hard-working items such as wallets, wash-bags, laptop satchels, diaries, passport covers with luggage tags, and sliotars.
We also searched across Ireland – and even as far as Italy – to find artisan craftspeople who shared our passion and vision for the project. Both (Carasco Tannery, Italy and Conor Holden Leathergoods, Kerry) were able to share our excitement, and we are delighted that they’ve chosen to collaborate with us on the world’s first range of Dexter Leather goods.
Our entire business stems from our passion to save and celebrate the Dexter breed, which of course meant that we had to develop our own single estate herd, here in Dundrum. Each member of our herd has a unique ‘trace-ability’ number which allows food producers to track the origin of their meat down to an individual farm.
Our product is designed with the colour of the animals in mind, which are black and copper red. This is reflected in black leather and copper fastenings.
Now, to emphasise the link between culture and agriculture, we have embossed each of our Dexter Leather notebooks, wash-bags, passport covers, and wallets, with a unique registration number. So, not only does it look stylish and serve as a reminder of the humble origins of these luxury products, we can now tell you the diet of your wallet!
All our products are placed into a canvas bag with our logo, then wrapped in our tissue paper and are then packaged in our stunning Killenure Dexter presentation boxes. Before we dispatch, we note your name and the unique registration number, and this is recorded in our “Dexter Bible”.
