This glove-softened and still stable calfleather receives ist natural and warm color shades from the true aniline tanning process.
Most leathers are tanned with the final colour applied as a top coat to the skin, thus hiding any imperfections in the leather. However, over time, this finish will wear and the imperfections will show. Our aniline tanning process involves each skin being coloured using watercolour dyes. These are fully absorbed deep into the skin to give a deep, rich colour to the leather. Over time, the leather will build a beautiful patina while loosing none of its original colour.
Our leather is tanned exclusively for us in France - Centre Val de Loire - using the finest skins from Germany and France.
This vegetable tanned calf is dyed for us using the aniline process, ie no covering color is applied which would cover the natural pores of the leather. At the end of the tanning process, a vegetal glaze is hand-rubbed into the leather. This hand-rubbing application results in the characteristic multicolor and brilliance of finished skins.
after dyeing, each individual skin is ironed with a press.
this ironing protects the surface, which becomes more robust and gives the characteristic brilliant shine.
this leather is tanned exclusively for us in Florence, Italy from South German raw skins.
This robust and distinctive leather comes from the original American Bison, from strictly controlled wildlife animals.
In Florence, these hides are vegetable tanned. The hides are then dyed with a maroon-colored watercolour, and ultimately finished with a dark brown protective varnish.
In the dark brown color, each model is hand-worked on our historc polishing machine, which gives a distinctive, patinated, antique surface finish.
This effect is less visible with the coxorange colour.
Embossed Calf Leather
Our embossed calf skin follows the vegetable tanning process as our Classico calf. However, during the process, each skin is embossed with either a croco or reptile print. This gives a beautiful and unique to each skin.
Upon request, we are able to offer reptile and alligator leather. All leathers come from registered and authenticated sources.
