Status Anxiety is the social condition caused by comparing ourselves to those around us. It's measuring how we're doing in terms of possessions, appearance and job titles etc resulting in status anxiety. It's no coincidence the question you get asked when you first meet someone is 'what do you do?'
This status anxiety can cause us to make decisions with our time and money that compromise what we really value in order to be 'successful'.
We’re not making light of anxiety but drawing attention to the potential affect of this condition which can leave us poorer.
You should know, there’s leather, and then... there's leather. We use predominantly Italian and Brazilian leathers, and although they cost more, the hand feel and the way they wear, is far superior.
Our tannery’s develop our leather just for us, some are washed, some waxed, some embossed and others shrunken.
Our manufacturers are family run and some of the best in the business. We personally visit them each year in China to ensure safe, fair work conditions and strict environmental controls go hand in hand with their well established leather craftsmanship.
