Leather that will age in their own way, as it is constantly developing its own expression and color, due to oxygen, light and contact with your hands. All their designs are finished with subtle detailing, as in handmade stitching with use of the finest waxed linnen thread, which adds a beautiful refined contrast with the high-quality leather.
