Have a sneak peek at how your Bible cover was handcrafted!

Take a look “behind the scenes” at how we’ve handcrafted your genuine cowhide Bible cover. Even though the video is abbreviated to about five minutes, the entire process takes about an hour. Don’t forget to leave a comment when you’re done! Of course, we make a lot more than Bible covers. This video will give you an idea of how all our products are manufactured.

About our Leather

Here at Ministry Ideaz, we use only the finest of leather made from 100% genuine cowhide. As a natural product, minimal scars and marks occur innately in cowhide. That’s why we thoroughly inspect the materials for various imperfections following a strict set of guidelines. This inspection is done to ensure the hide is of top quality, as the condition of the leather is the foundation of our first-class products used in over 180 countries.

Our genuine leather products come in two grades: elegant and rustic. The elegant grade is delicate while the rustic grade is more robust. The grades and many colors of leather products we offer let us appeal to the varying tastes of you, our customers.

The cover-making process includes the use of a foil-embossing press, a sewing machine, a hammer, glue, a small knife, and other various small tools. We to prepare each cover with patience, precision, and excellence.

About “Bonded Leather”

We never use “bonded leather.” Bonded leather is made with pieces of scrap leather boiled and placed in a mold to create a larger piece. While such a technique does technically create leather, Ministry Ideaz does not use such methods in the making of our luxury leather goods known the world over. Many of our competitors use bonded leather which is why their products cost less. However, it is much less durable. For many folks, spending more on a genuine leather product offers a great value over the long term, even if the initial purchase cost is higher.

We’d love to hear from you!

Please let us know in the comments below what country you’re from, and how long you’ve had your Bible cover! And if you haven’t got one yet, or if you’d like to upgrade to a new color, please visit our website: MinistryIdeaz.com

  8. I have a newfound appreciation for "attention to detail" after watching the video. It now surprises me that the cost is not more. I have purchased similar coverings from you, but without the script on front. Thanks for sharing!

  35. I am from Australia, and I have had a Bible cover for over 12 years. I was pioneering for several of them, and my now 3yr old loves the cover so much that I had to give it to him... despite the 'age' you would never know! The quality is such that it still looks almost as good as new! Thank you so much for making such good products! Now I know why they hold up so well.

  36. Seeing the work involved deepens the appreciation. Just like receiving a hand made quilt. I would love just as a cover that slips on like the book cover without zipper

  44. Greetings from Montreal, Canada. I've alway appreciated your Bible covers for several years (I'm not sure how many), but now I'll appreciate them even more! Woww!!! That video was absolutely amazing! And I wondered why your prices were high. I never realized they were handcrafted as opposed to assembly-line made. I'll never question the price again! (You can increase your prices if you want.)

  45. Thank you Bros. I found it fascinating how the covers are made. I love the ones I have and being a craft person myself, I appreciate all the handwork that goes into making the covers.

  50. I have had one of your zippered leather Bible covers for at least three years. It is handsome and protects my Bible perfectly. Thank you for the behind-the-scenes look at your craftsmanship.

  51. Very interesting! I have 2 bible covers and have found them to be great for keeping my Bible safe. Knowing all the details that go into making a bible cover makes it all the more special in having one. Thank you for showing how this is done.

  52. Seeing the care and detail that goes into making one item (the music made it even more moving), my appreciation for your work is now magnified. Thank you for letting me see behind the scenes. I love you!

  53. It's so nice to see the craftsmanship that goes into your work. Sometimes we look at only the final cost of the product we order and think, "why does it cost so much?" True craftsmanship will cost a little more, but you will not find such quality at your local mall. Would we rather pay once for a high quality product, or pay many times for products that fall apart soon after we purchase them? We really save in the long run. Thank you!

  54. I didn't realize these were actually hand made, thought it was mass produced. Great video.

  55. Adhesives! Reminds me, Symposium: 'Pursue What builds Loyalty', Sun. morning program regional conv '16. Muscle shellfish attach self w/ fluid & adds natr'l adhesive for an unbreakble bond, like we can have unbrkble bond of Faith. What enabled Abraham do the unthinkable & enable us bear trials? Abraham 'REASONED' Jah was able to raise Isaac up, even from the dead. Ps27
    Build loyalty w/ love when we think about good qualities in our mate & others, thus build's loyalty.
    Your prices are reasonaable & competitive! I shop from you mostly because of the style, format, quality but mostly genuine Christ like personality I see in your 'family' business.

  69. I also appreciate the hard work and expertise with the Bible covers I have given many as gifts to Bible Students and their children. Just to see their eyes light up and a great big smile makes my heart melt. They treasure the Bible and even more so because I always express to keep the Bible neat and clean because it's a wonderful gift from Jehovah. I also encourage them to read it daily and they are doing this which makes me so happy and I'm sure Jehovah is very happy.

    Thanks again and keep up the good work.

  72. That was a beautiful video. I love my Bible cover very much. I'm especially happy that it's the same grey as the Bible made by Jehovah's organization. Thank you for all your hard work and attention to detail.

  73. Thank you for sharing this process with your customers and prospective customers. I've owned one of your gray leather zippered covers for about 2 years and have loved it. Since I'm a pioneer, however, I found it difficult to keep clean so I've just ordered a maroon one. I'm looking forward to receiving it. Thank you for all your hard work.
