hand washed leather
Hand wash series using original leather based on Tochigi leather , one of the world's leading tanners.
Tanned with vegetable tannins and blended with a unique oil, it overcomes the disadvantage of leather that normally becomes hard when wet, resulting in a texture that is just the right amount of flexibility and fits comfortably in the hand.
After the product is finished, it is washed, and when it is half-dried, the craftsman manually molds it one by one with his fingers to give it a textured feel. After that, it is left to dry naturally, and the entire surface is hand-polished to give it a sharper look.
Since the finish depends on the condition of the leather and the parts used, each piece has a different expression. A product that can never be mass-produced.
A hand wash series that has been carefully finished with time and effort.
Please take it in your hand and check the texture.
Due to the characteristics of the product, there may be slight differences in the actual color, size and weight.
Since the leather is washed to bring out the texture, the appearance of wrinkles and the color of each item are different.

Cowhide leather made with the vachetta method of Badalassi Carlo, a prestigious Italian tanner.
[What is the Bucketta manufacturing method]
With a history of more than 10 centuries, the traditional Italian vachetta manufacturing method does not use any chemicals, spends time on cowhide tanned using vegetable tannins, and adds high-purity "beef leg oil". It is a manufacturing method that goes on.
The leather is tanned using the vachetta method, and the surface has been intentionally raised with a gold brush by hand as a finishing process, giving it a very high impact.
At first, it feels like Japanese paper, and has a matte texture, so it has almost no gloss.
The speed and depth of aging are very dramatic, and the moist texture that sticks to it when used is also a great attraction.
Leather lovers will surely be satisfied with this leather.
If you apply oil at the beginning of use, you will not be able to enjoy the natural aging of the leather.
