The Italian Leather Band is made in the U.S. As Olpr. leather goods points out, handmade leather products are subject to changes in color. Sometimes it can be lighter or darker than it appears in a photograph, as each hide reacts to the dyeing process differently. In addition, full-grain leather may contain unique blemishes, marks or scars.
