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.
This is a truly unique leather. Due to its thickness it is necessary to line the leather with a less elastic vegetable tanned leather on the reverse, but the strength of the salmon itself is far beyond what you may expect.
The texture is 100% natural and retains a very clear scale pattern.
Unlike snake or alligator, salmon has a matt finish with a very distinctive protruding texture.
The skins originate from Russia where they are processed in a similar way to other vegetable tanned leather.
