This Is Ground is an L.A.-based firm that designs leather products and accessories for on-the-go creative types. Products feature utility and usability with an overall minimal aesthetic to allow customers to easily find their tools and show off their work in a light-weight, easy-to-carry fashion.
Their vegetable-tanned leather is sourced from the Tuscany region of Italy. The leather ages well over time due to a process that starts with a wash and dry phase. It is then pressed for smoothness, dyed with vegetable tannins to achieve signature colors, enriched with cow fat for anti-scratching and finally spray finished to bring out the soft feel.
This Is Ground products are designed and prototyped in their downtown L.A. studio, and made there and in Italy.
