Leather Motel Key Tag | Made In Texas
Manready Mercantile leather key tags are all handmade in Houston, Texas out of American leather.
This motel tag is a throwback to the days when the US Post Office would return motel keys back when someone popped them in a post office box. At Manready Mercantile, we source the best leathers in the world and will never compromise on quality. We proudly use Wicket and Craig leather which is made in Pennsylvania and has been around since 1867.
Natural: Being the lightest color option, these are made from vegetable tanned leather, or "veg tanned" leather. Vegetable tanned leather is naturally dyed with materials like tree bark and plants, producing a beige color. Free of coloring or chromates, this leather will age, or "patina" over time. Factors that will affect the appearance of veg-tanned leather are sunlight, oils from your skin, oiling it, liquids touching it, and time... Needless to say, veg-tanned leather only gets better with time! Many folks even like to document the aging process with pictures to see the change that occurs.
Light Brown: Our most popular color option, these are made from harness leather, and are a warm, tan color. Please note that harness leather has a slight wax-type feel to the touch and shows light abrasions easily. This is actually Travis' favorite as it looks incredible with age. (The more roughed up the better!)
Medium Brown: This color has an orange-brown hue, commonly known as "chestnut brown". We use bridal leather for this style.
Dark Brown: Our dark brown coasters are a classic, chocolate color, and are made with bridal leather. You can't go wrong with this color.
Black: Being our darkest color option, these are made with bridal leather.
