【What you would like me to know when choosing this leather product】
Even if you say "genuine leather" bitefully, do you know that there is a big difference in its nature and price?
Actually, even if it is indicated as "real leather goods", its price is quite varied.
Although the difference in price depends on the design and manufacturing process, it is not uncommon for the same real leather to produce a difference of more than 10 times even if it is compared in the place of "material cost of leather".
Why so much difference? The reason is described below.
There are two manufacturing methods for leather. "Chrome tanning" and "vegetable tannin tanning".
At present, leather that is on the market is dominated by leather tanned using "chrome tanning" chemical ingredients.
Chrome tanned leather has the advantage that the surface is finished relatively uniformly, flexible, and resistant to heat.
Also, because it is finished in large quantities in a short period of time, the cost is also cheap, but on the other hand, it is also a leather that is not easy to achieve "aging" which is the real pleasure of using this leather.
Scratches and dirt of aging will remain unchanged as scratched dirt as it is, it will be seen as "deteriorated" in the eyes.
In other words [Chrome tanned leather is a material suitable for mass production, I think that it can be said that the most beautiful leather when finished].
Meanwhile, the leather tanned using the astringent taste of "plant tannin tanning" is called "leather nume".
Nume leather tanning is an ancient process. The finish that keeps the texture of the raw skin, the surface is easily affected by innate scars and blood traces, the softness also varies depending on the part.
It is costly to finish over a long time and it is hard to say that it is a stable material, but leather that can enjoy the "aging" such as changing the gloss by long use and increasing the depth of the color.
[Nume leather is an old manufacturing method, it takes time and cost, but it is not perfect when you put it in hand, I think that you can say that leather is growing attachment over time.
What you are asking for materials of leather, does not it mean "long lasting material"?
"Because you have leather goods at a great price, I'd like you to choose leather that you can taste the change by using it long."
From that idea, KALEIDOSCOPE's work is focused on "Nume leather".
* The leather used in this work is the finest Italian shoulder which is manufactured at the consulia · La · Bretagna company in Tuscany, Italy.
Craftsmen are staining one by one manually with a sense of color unique to Italy, which has benefited from Tuscan climate climate and the water quality of the Arno River.
Characterized by natural color unevenness and natural grain finish finished with only 100% dye, it is expressive wind.
While you are using it will be polished with friction and will aging deeply beautiful luster.
【If you are looking for intact leather products, please refrain from purchasing】
Because it is natural leather, there are inherent scars and unevenness.
Although it avoids big scratches, please understand some small scratches.
I used YKK fastener made in Japan.
Despite being attracted to fashionable foreign zipper of design, "Good sliding, difficulty of appearance, difficulty of durability, durability" By comparing these points, I think that Japan's fastener is also wonderful.
