$70.00

This necklace features a two-color offset print designed by artist Paula J. Wilson and hand screen printed in Chicago by artist Nora Renick-Reinhart. The printed leather is layered over solid black leather and embellished with contrast topstitching and antique brass snaps.

The leather used in this neck­lace is from Horween, a union­ized tannery located one mile from Produc­tion Mode’s Chicago studio. Vegetable tanning is a slow, non-toxic process which uses tree bark to cure the leather and which produces hides with rich, warm, and uniquely varie­gated tones that improve as they age. In addi­tion, vegetable tanned leather can be more easily and safely recy­cled than chrome tanned leather (the most commonly used and often quite toxic method of process­ing leather).

This neck­lace is sewn at Produc­tion Mode’s Chicago studio by an arti­san hired through Loom, a social enter­prise of Catholic Char­i­ties Refugee Reset­tle­ment Program.  Produc­tion Mode pays a living wage to all work­ers in our supply chain.

Vegetable tanned leather retains the grain patterns, marks, and scars picked up by the animal during its life­time. In addi­tion, each natural colored hide has been hand printed. Each neck­lace reflects these vari­a­tions of the hide and hand.

Made in the USA
