Vachetta Milled Leather
Leather with the sound of traditional craftsmanship
Local tanners make it with traditional tanning techniques that have been used for over a thousand years. The leather is immersed in a mixture of vegetable tannins and neatsfoot oil, and the entire tanning process takes several months to complete. The resulting leather has a natural feel with a smooth, even grain and a strong, dense fiber structure. When the leather is rubbed against itself, it makes a unique sound due to the oil it contains. With use, the color and aroma of the leather will become richer and the surface will develop a natural sheen. Soft leather is used for the back cushion pad and the inside of the shoulder straps, as these are the parts that come in contact with the body. This is the same material used in the production of children's schoolbags"Randoseru". This material has excellent breathability and moisture wicking properties, and creates a very comfortable carrying experience.
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.
