PRODUCTION & DESIGN
For those of you who have welcomed the Alexa Echo Dot into your home, why not give her a makeover? After all, she's there for you in your times of need. She'll order your groceries, turn off your lights, play your favorite tunes, and even tell you (cringeworthy) jokes.
To thank her, why not give her some love with a rustic, attractive Alexa Case. Wrapping snugly around the Dot, the elegant Alexa Case opens up at both the top and the bottom so as not to impede any of Alexa's listening or speaking abilities. Available in three colors, Bourbon Brown, Slate Blue and Charcoal Black, and handcrafted with durable, finely-stitched Full Grain Leather, this is the only way to add a new life to your thoughtful, caring Alexa.
Here's one for all you Star Trek fans, the developers of Alexa were actually inspired by the computer voice aboard the starship Enterprise, while Alexa's name is reminiscent of one of the wonders of the ancient world, the Library of Alexandria. Oh, by the way, there's something for all you Star Wars fans, too; you'll be pleasantly surprised when you tell the Echo Dot "Alexa, I am your father..."
A little bit about our product creation...
All of our products are diligently handmade by H&D's local artisans in La Antigua, Guatemala. The durable leather is subtly fire-branded with our signature mark, the Owl. In Guatemala, owls (or 'tecos') are a harbinger of good fortune, which is why we at Hide & Drink want to offer you a continuous source of positive energy and good luck in your home.
The leather we use, originating from our multi-generational family owned supplier, is nothing but Full Grain Leather, the best you can get when it comes to leather. This type of leather comes from the top layer of the hide, and contains all of the grain, hence its name. It's the best leather than you can buy and Hide & Drink is its biggest fan. You can stop looking now, you've found the cream of the crop.
The tanning process is something that we take pride in. Our rustic leather is created through removing the hair, extracting the moisture, taking out the oils and, of course, the natural preservatives. The leather is placed in a large container filled with new oils, coloring and preservatives, and there it takes on its new color and thus its new personality. The finishing process consists of pressing the leather with heated plates, hung up to dry and sprayed and finished with a sealer. Finally, it is pressed once more and then ready for its transformation, in which it is carefully handcrafted by the diligent locals of La Antigua, Guatemala, where our workshop is located.
