SPARE PARTS: Replacement corks and pegs are available in our Parts section.
LEATHER: Your Walnut Studiolo product uses natural, vegetable-tanned leather and will not look exactly as pictured here. Real, natural leather carries is a natural material, so every hide has unique characteristics that individually personalize each product. Just as no two fingerprints are alike, each piece of leather is distinctive in its color, grain, and markings, which may include scars, mars, or blemishes that are a natural part of the cow's life and a sign of the high quality of the leather we use.
COLOR: Dark brown leather
MATERIALS: Birch plywood, hand-dyed vegetable-tanned leather, brass hardware, and premium cork closure. Gift set also includes one deck of playing cards and a stamped double-drawstring muslin carrying bag.
DIMENSIONS/WEIGHTS: When closed, it measures 2" x 3 7/8" x 3/8" thick (50mm x 98mm x 9mm) and weighs in at 1.2 ounces (35g). The wood pieces are approximately 1/8" (3mm) thick.
CARE: The oils in your hands will naturally condition the leather with use and time. However, if your product is starting to look dry, take the time to give it a little care by conditioning it with oil or vegetable-tanned leather care products, using the leather care recommendations HERE. If your leather gets dirty, clean it then condition it. Clean it with diluted mild castile soap or hand dishwashing liquid, diluted at least 1:10 (it should not be sudsy), and allow to dry completely before conditioning. The board does lay flat, as shown in the picture, but when you first receive it the leather hinge will be a little stiff. It will lay flat as the leather relaxes, which you can speed up by folding and roughhousing the leather (it's tough equestrian leather, it can handle the roughhousing!).
MONOGRAMMING: Yes! The leather can be monogrammed with up to 3 characters. Monogram font is 1/4" and is shown in the last picture. We do not have numbers or special characters in our fontset like "&" although we can make a "*" or "+" or "." or a heart.
