Veg-tanned cowhide leather, full-grain, tanned by hand in Italy

Dimensions :

Approximately 15*15 cm closed

Approximately 20*20 cm opened

 

For all our products, we use vegetable tanned cowhide leather.

This kind of leather is tanned by using only organic products such as branches, leaves, sometimes even fruits. All this work is done by hand.

This process is more time consuming than tanning with chrome, but no chemicals are used, therefore it is more ecological. Moreover, this process makes it harmless to people who work in the factory. It is the most sustainable tanning.

Tanning the leather with natural product keeps it breathable, compared to chrome tanning where leather is damaged with the use of chemical products, reducing its lifetime.

Vegetable tanned leather ages in a very beautiful way, it develops a patina which makes it unique. It does not have a uniform colour, because of the fact that the process is done by hand, but this is what makes this leather so unique and beautiful. They will get scars from all your journeys, they will age with you. No two products will look the same, they will all tell a different story, yours.

The leather used is Full- Grain leather, which is the whole surface of the skin of the animal, just below the hair. It's the strongest part of the animal's skin. As opposed to Top-Grain leather, it has a lot of irregularities, such as vein-marks, sometimes even scratches, because the leather has not been retouched to remove natural markings. The grain is totally natural and is never the same from one animal to another.

Top-Grain leather has a more uniform appearance because irregularities have been removed by cutting the very top part of the leather, but this process makes it less resistant to wear, and makes it almost impossible to develop a patina.

Our Full-Grain leather is the highest quality leather, from every aspect. It can fade and become darker with age, it's resistant to water and it has kept its unique look. Be aware that this leather may be stiff at the beginning, but it will become softer after a few wears.

Cowhide leather is one of the most resistant leather. It has more grain than calfskin leather, more character, that is what makes it more unique.
