    Character: This is one of our favorite leathers for our shoes.  It has an ideal thickness, pliability, and wax content perfect for shoes made with no stiffeners.  The wax content in darker colors can be augmented with more shoe wax to help with wet and cold weather.  Overall the leather has a nice relaxed vintage look.

    Care: This is best conditioned with a good quality liquid saddlesoap. Darker colors can be conditioned or cleaned with a shoe wax as well. Be sure to test a small area prior to using.  

    This leather is tanned in The Netherlands using only steer from less than 50km away.  The tannery has set the standard for BAT (Best Available Technology) standards in the EU with 30% less water usage and no salinization of ground water.  They split the leather to return 60% of the hide to the food chain and use remaining fats to create biogas used to heat their facilities and production.

      There are inherent variations in natural leathers, handmade manufacturing, and local sourcing.  Color and texture variations can vary within the same hide.  Different monitors can also display colors differently.  You may indicate any preferences in tone or texture in the Notes to Shoemaker section if you are looking for something specific so we can do our best to accomodate.

        Character:  This leather is a vegetable tanned leather that has been hand finished meticulously in Italy with layers upon layers of dyes and waxes giving it it's beautiful character and nuance in tones.  It is a true artesan leather made with attention to detail and tradition.  The full vegetable tannage keeps the fibers intact resulting in a firmer leather that relaxes quickly with wear.

        Care: This is best conditioned with a good quality liquid saddlesoap. Darker colors can be conditioned or cleaned with a shoe wax as well. Be sure to test a small area prior to using.

        This leather is sourced from a family run company in Barcelona. All of their leather is tanned within Europe, using European steer, this particular one is tanned in Italy and each piece is hand dyed individually in a time consuming process. The tannery is in the Tuscan region of Italy. They make only 100% Vegetable Tanned leathers and bear the Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana mark which are the strictest standards in traditional leather tanning and environmental standards. Their labor standards are also certified.
