Dundrum Dexter is a company that pride themselves on operating sustainably and in a conservation-friendly manner.
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 their Dexter leather range, they focused on products which we felt reflected the ethos of their brand. They 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.
They also searched across Ireland – and even as far as Italy – to find artisan craftspeople who shared their passion and vision for the project. Both (Carasco Tannery, Italy and Conor Holden Leathergoods, Kerry) were able to share their excitement, and they are delighted that they’ve chosen to collaborate with them on the world’s first range of Dexter Leather goods.
