TORNAT® Fine Grain Leather

TORNAT® Fine Grain Leather

A leather that feels soft and supple to the touch and has a rich natural grain pattern: "TORNAT® Fine Grain Leather"

The main material used to make the Travel series is the eco-conscious "TORNAT® Fine Grain Leather." This type of leather is made using the "TORNAT" processing method, which aims to minimize the use and discharge of harmful substances. The resulting leather is supple yet durable with a texture that feels soft and gentle to the touch. It also dyes beautifully. Creases form naturally from drum tumbling, resulting in varying yet equally rich leather expressions at different parts. This tanning method also strengthens the viscosity of the fibers, so you don’t have to worry about cracking. The surface has undergone water repellent treatment, and small amounts of moisture will bounce right off.

The Look of Natural Leather

We have chosen to keep natural markings such as scars, wrinkles, veins, and pores on the cowhide to showcase the natural appearance of the leather in our products. This is one of the most distinctive features of our bags. The appearance of the leather will vary depending on the part of the hide and individual differences between animals. Through careful observation, you will uncover your leather product's unique, one-of-a-kind appearance.
