This leather design uses one of my favorite designs leftover from my leather working days back in the 70's. It is the simple cross with the vine that reminds us of Jesus words, "I am the vine and ye are the branches". I've pictured the back as well to show how beautifully the leather itself is showcased when hand dyed.
The hide has gone through the "vegetable" tanning process, the compounds used to treat it come straight from plants (typically tree bark). After I burn the design into the surface, I apply the dye in layers to give it the beautiful "antiqued" look. Because the dye is applied by hand and each
piece of leather has a unique grain which accepts the dye in its own individual way, each piece is a one of a kind. It is also treated with a leather balm which has just a touch of wax. This adds no additional color but seals and protects it as well as giving it that polished look and
'pleasant to the touch' feel. This cover will protect the bible within for generations to come. This is a new edition just created for this year and will be released in limited quantities.
This design is available on one of our stock bibles. We have KJV, NKJV, NIV and ESV. Just let us know if you would prefer to send us your bible or one of your choice.
