Ever since Sandast was found, we have constantly dedicated ourselves to upgrade the quality of our products. We believe the Quality is determined by 2 phases; our workers & materials we use. So I go all around the globe to hand pick the best materials possible.
SolidBrass: All buckles, D-rings, Dogleash Hook used in our collection are made out of #SolidBrass. We used to import these from France; however, we may have to import these from Taiwan as French company is no longer producing anything in #SolidBrass. Many companies are using #Zinc or #alloy to save cost. I get often asked why Sandast keeps insisting on using #SolidBrass because with the plating, Zinc or Alloy look just as same as #SolidBrass and they cost much less. Yes, they may look similar to #SolidBrass, but no matter how much plating can be done, Zinc can not become #SolidBrass and we are committed to use #SolidBrass.
This lock is made out of #Solidbrass and is #MadeinItaly. I’ve never seen any lock work better and smoother than this lock. This #snapmagnet also comes from Italy. This snap magnet is produced by a company in Italy that specializes in magnets. I can assure you that this might be the strongest magnet so that we can provide the security & functionality.
Most of our unique hardware also come from the Italy. The frame used in our Christopher are vintage frame #MadeinItaly. Our #feet, small components, and even the #Ballchain used for our hangtag comes from Italy. Dedication to #Quality is our 1st priority. Zipper used in Sandast collection is #Riri zipper made out of #Switzerland.
We continue to search for ways to improve our quality. If there is a material or component that are better in quality, we will test it and implement it. This slider used in our #GregoryCollection comes from #Japan and this slider taught me there is always a room for improvement.
