Ironclad pan sleeve made in Franz Josef Waiau, New Zealand
Ironclad partnered with the leathersmiths at Coast Craft in Franz Josef Waiau to create a limited run of skillet handle sleeves.
Like all Ironclad products, the Ironclad pan sleeve is made to last. Each one is hand-made in Aotearoa New Zealand using leather from Whanganui and designed to fit snug on all Ironclad pan handles. This sleeve is made from a full grain 'raw-look' oiled leather (no stains or varnish are used). The oil makes it flexible and water resistant and over time it will get a beautiful dark, distressed finish.
Ironclad makes products that people need, in quantities people need them. That’s to avoid the waste that comes from low-cost mass-run commercial manufacturing. While making products to order may not be economically savvy, it is environmentally friendly.
