【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 amount 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.
The aged scratches and dirt will remain unchanged as scratched dirt and will appear 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 manufactured by Italy · Tempesti company, it is the finest Italian shoulder. "The more beautiful you use it," I chose the most suitable material considering long use. 】
It is a fine Italian single bat made in Tempesti, a long-established tanner located in the Santa Croce area called the birthplace of vegetable tanning even in the Tuscan region where numerous tanners gather.
We do not use natural color unevenness finished with 100% dye and do not do "finishing" finish but we take the time and take 1.5 to 2 times normal amount We are using leather characterized by oil bucketter finish.
[Brackets are using solid brass as much as possible]
Like leather, taste comes out enough to wear.
As you start to use, because leather is tight, you may find it hard to close the bracket, but it will become familiar as you use it.
Since the spring hook also wears out, if you make it easier to close it from the beginning, we will make this kind of adjustment because there is a risk that the hook will become loose in a short time.
[Commitment in production]
As much as possible by hand.
The work of KALEIDOSCOPE sticks to "making it by hand cutting as much as possible with leather kitchen kneaded by myself".
I also produce paper patterns on thick paper and hand cutting.
I would be happy if you feel a piece of hand-made feeling.
