At Pad & Quill, we use very high-quality full-grain bridle leathers in all our bags and leather iPhone and iPad cases. Full-grain leather is an amazing thing, it is extra thick, super durable, and among the highest quality of leather available. Our full-grain leather is of the "pull-up leather" variety. This leather has waxes, dyes, and oils deeply impregnated in it instead of being painted or coated with color. This process gives the leather a beautifully rich color & depth. You will find this leather used on the highest quality couches, leather jackets, boots, and of course, our all of our leather bags.
One of the best features of our full-grain pull-up leather is that it ages with you and develops a stunning patina over time. High-quality pull-up leather scratches. That is a fact of life. With use, these scratches build up over time, blend together, and soften into a unique and gorgeous patina.
However, not everybody likes scratches on their leather, or maybe there are one or two unsightly scratches you want to remove. Read on for our tips on removing scratches from leather, and how to get scratches out of pull up leather.

Spring has fully sprung up here in the frozen tundra, and that means one thing for me, destruction of IOS devices. I set a land speed record this year, shattering my iPhone 6s two times in 10 days. Mr. PQ has abandoned me as a product tester for our new Timberline cases. As using and giving feedback on our products is part of my job description, I am compelled to tote my iPhone and Apple Watch everywhere I go, including on a rigorous walk with Bear, the PQ mascot, my friend Angie and her dog Mason.
