Our leathers

Leathers > shiny

Shiny calf leather, finished in aniline at the tannery stage. It has a remarkable fullness of black (or colour of choice) and a complete absence of veins and wrinkles.
Highly suitable for elegant footwear, wedding shoes or dress shoes for your special days.
This material presents a medium hardness due to the leather treatment.

Leather > polished

Brush off calf leather, this classic calfskin has a great lustre thanks to aniline treatment and a firm grain, which prevents ageing. The leather is covered with contrasting black brush-off, which is removed by the artisan through brushing in order to bring out the underlying colour. Suitable for elegant and semi-casual shoes.
This polished material presents a higher hardness due to the treatments to cover the leather with a microfilm, thus resulting in a slightly less comfortable material compared to others, but you know: “no pain, no gain!”

Leathers > decò

Hand decoloured calf leather, this natural calf shows a neutral leather colour with a pure aniline finish, and is buffed by hand. This allows a high degree of customisation for antiquing-effects, which are uniform on the vamp and not mechanical. Can be worked with cream or wire brush to achieve an antiqued effect or a natural shine. Normal hardness, perfect for shoes that go from casual to sophisticated depending on the colour you choose; but this material always has that elegant hint thanks to its artisanal hand finishing. Especially conceived for vintage shoes true lovers and conoisseurs, passionate for craftsmanship.
