This goat skin is produced by Alran, a small French tannery located near Toulouse.
The richness of colour and durability of their leathers have made them leaders in their field, supplying the most prestigious international luxury brands since 1903.
Chèvre is a significantly softer and more flexible leather compared to the calf skin used elsewhere.
Whilst it lacks the stability needed for larger items it is extremely resistant to scratches and general signs of wear making it perfect for small items that are used daily.
The colour will not change as it does in other leathers so you can rely on the bright tones being as striking in years to come as they are from the day you receive them.
Saint Crispin Italian calf
These hides are taken from Alpine grazed calf and offer a depth of colour and texture unlike anything else on the market.
Quoted by British luxury leather goods brand Ettinger as being 'the silkiest, most beautiful veg-tan leather we have ever seen'.
It offers superb strength and stability for its weight making it the perfect choice for pieces to be carried on the person and used daily.
Thanks to its richness in natural oils it burnishes beautifully and will gradually develop a deep shine over time making its naturally earthy tones more pronounced.
