We are about keeping craftsmanship alive and producing products that are well-designed and individually made for each customer.
The MONT5 individual product making process
Modern large scale manufacturing processes create bulk quantities and produce goods at lower cost. These methods while cheaper, take the love out & the detail that goes into creating a personalized product.
At MONT5 we create each product individually with the help of our skilled craftsmen using traditional processes.
Raw hide is extracted from meat producing animals & sent to the tannery. The tanning process converts raw hide into stable material that does not decay.
There are multiple tanning methods like ‘vegetable tanning’, ‘mineral’, ‘oil tanning’ and ‘chromium tanning’ also referred to as ‘the wet blue’.
The skin is dried after tanning. Dried leather is processed to create top grain leather and is dyed afterwards.
Finishing which determines what the leather would look like, Popular leather finishes are Aniline, Nappa, Nubuck, Suede, Semi Aniline, waxed and oiled.
We take inspiration from the classics and create designs for the modern man, which would fit right into urban-wear-wardrobe and are rugged enough for the outdoor man.
Our in house designers work closely with the craftsmen to create the perfect fit.
In off the shelf products one pattern is created for each size. At MONT5 a unique pattern is created by for each individual customer.
With 18-years of experience up his sleeves, Mr. Basharat is the creative nerve-center of our production process. He is the guy who deciphers all the body measurements skillfully and transforms them into unique patterns.

Once all the fabric is cut, it’s ready to meet the stitcher. All the components are stitched together and the product takes its physical shape. It’s all in the skill of the stitcher to create a product that lasts a lifetime and looks apart.

Pressing & Molding
