Vintage Wax Leather

Vintage Wax Leather

Vintage waxed leather that will improve with age

The "Vintage Wax Leather" used in the Rebeat series is steerhide that first underwent chrome tanning and then was tanned a second time using vegetable tannins. The double-tanned leather is then placed in a giant, drum-shaped receptacle containing beeswax and beaten to allow the leather to fully absorb the beeswax. The beeswax gives the leather a soft and strong texture, and at times a white bloom will appear on the surface. Over time, the natural expressions of the leather such as creases or scratches will integrate with the calm and matte texture and a rich and charming patina unique to you will gradually develop.

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.
