Cloverlily Leather Incense Holder - 3 Colours
A handmade leather incense holder, made from a unique pull up leather. A stylish and minimalist variation on a standard incense holder, designed to be a complementary addition to any space.
Due to the use of a natural vegetable tanned, pull up leather the colour will change as the piece piece is used, generating a unique and beautiful patina. Wearing each crease, each touch and each shot in its skin as a mark of character.
This is entirely cut, crafted and assembled by hand by me in my workshop in Folkestone, Kent, UK. They can withstand the ash from incense however it should never be left unattended, used with cone incense, and should never be exposed to naked flames.
The type of leather used varies in shade quite a bit and will change over time, all photos are as to be a guide only.
Manufacture time for this item is 1-3 days.
Coal, Dark Brown, Medium Brown
How long will my order Take?
The Saying Goes, good things come to those who wait.
You are not ordering from Amazon here! These are premium slow made leather goods, made to order. Using traditonal techniques.
Typical turn around is 2-3 working days for small items and straps and 2-5 working days for slings and harnesses. Trust me, they are worth the wait.

For Harnesses delivery comes in two flavours, Express and Regular. Express is a 24 hour service and Regular is a 48 hour service, these times are upon completion of manufacture so it all depends on how impatient you are!
For small items it is sent 1st class large letter.
Who doesnt love a bit of TLC?
For conditioning and refinishing get yourself a good quality leather wax or oil (for example Terrago Mink Oil). Using a soft, clean cloth apply a pea sized bit of oil to the strap working it in on the skin side (outside) only, rub it in thoroughly and leave it to dry, removing excess that doesn't soak in. Apply a second coat if you feel it needs it, and you're done.
Easy peasy right?
Because of the use of vegetable tanned leather, all my straps and harnesses will mould to your shape and fit like a glove. The only way to get through this breaking in period is to... You guessed it. Wear it!
Patina Rushing/Colour Deepening
If you want to rush the development of the leathers patina or want to deepen the pieces colour, a nifty hack is to leave your strap or harness outside in the sun. Do ensure you do this only when there is no rain forecast, the straps are shower resistant but it will not like a downpour.
