Metal rivets and washers are essential in leathercraft, providing functional and aesthetic benefits. They are crucial in securing different pieces of leather items and enhancing their durability.
At Leffler, a renowned supplier of leathercraft hardware, you can find a wide range of washers and other metal components for leather applications. Explore our selection online and find the best leathercraft supplies to suit your needs and preferences.
One of the main advantages of using these types of hardware is evenly distributing stress across the surface, preventing the material from tearing or stretching. They also add a decorative flair, boosting the overall aesthetics of the finished product and giving it a more professional and polished look.
These metal components come in various types, each designed to serve specific purposes in leatherwork. You can find several options at Leffler, including single-cap, double-cap, and tubular rivets for leather. Single caps include a single decorative cap on one side and a sturdy post on the other. They are helpful for lighter applications, such as attaching belt loops or securing thin layers of leather.
Double-cap types feature decorative caps on both sides of the material, providing a more finished look. Due to their greater strength and durability, they’re a perfect solution for leather bags, wallets, and other heavy-duty leather projects requiring added sturdiness.
As the name suggests, tubular kinds have a tubular shape that's useful for thicker or heavier leather items. They provide exceptional holding power, ideal for high-stress areas, such as handles or straps on bags and belts. These hardware pieces create a secure bond, ensuring that your leatherwork withstands the test of time.
Leffler provides a range of washers to complement our rivets, serving multiple purposes in leathercraft. These small metal discs should be placed between the fastener and the leather surface, distributing the load and protecting the material from possible damage caused by the rivet.
They also help prevent the clip from pulling through the leather or causing distortion, increasing the strength and longevity of the leather project and ensuring it remains intact over time.
