The Society inc studio is full of leather and cane oddities & curiosities with time stamps dating back to hand stitched butt seams used in 14th century boot making to modern artisan studios in Kyoto revitalising leather and canvas goods. Sun tanned cane wrapped objects are a constant source of inspiration. Through Sibella’s wide ranging traversing through flea markets and lands far and wide to bring back the most wonderful objects we have built a knowledge and appreciation for leather goods and the various ways they have been finished throughout time. We make products that are lived in finishes and change over time. They get scuffed and marked, they patina, they hold the history of their lifespan on their surfaces.
Our cane products are all wrapped using natural untreated cane. Wrapped and woven over iron or brass, the cane will age and patina with wear. Strong and inherently durable, cane has a wonderful handle and all that is needed is regular handling to keep it dust free and ageing into itself beautifully.
If you would like to keep cane nourished, try applying a coat of linseed oil. We do not recommend using cane in fully wet areas or exposing it to prolonged contact with wet or damp items like sopping wet towels.
