YUKON LEATHER

WE LOVED THE TUDOR LEATHER SO MUCH THAT WE JUST HAD TO VISIT ITALY AGAIN TO CREATE ANOTHER ITALIAN LEATHER, AFTER ALL TUMBLE AND HIDE’S HERITAGE BEGAN SOLELY WITH ITALIAN LEATHER. THIS TIME WE TOOK OURSELVES OFF TO THE PROVINCE OF VICENZA IN THE VENTO REGION OF NORTHERN ITALY. IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOUNTAINS WE FOUND AN ARTISAN TANNERY WHO HAD A REAL KNACK FOR COMBINING TANNING TECHNIQUES AND COULD OFFER THAT SOMETHING SPECIAL THAT WE WERE AFTER.

THE OUTCOME WAS THE YUKON LEATHER, A WONDERFULLY SOFT LEATHER THAT IS STEEPED IN CHARACTER. BY USING TRADITIONAL TUMBLING METHODS WE WERE ABLE TO ACHIEVE A FULL GRAIN LEATHER THAT IS RICH IN BOTH TEXTURE AND CHROMA. THE CONSISTENT GRAIN PATTERN IS A TESTAMENT TO THE TANNERY AND THE TECHNIQUE INVOLVED.

WE WANTED TO PUSH THIS LEATHER SLIGHTLY FURTHER BY ADDING SOME EXTRA DEPTH TO IT. TO ACHIEVE THIS THE LEATHER HIDES HAVE BEEN VERY CAREFULLY AND EVER SO SLIGHTLY RUBBED BY HAND. THIS PROCESS IS BOTH PAINSTAKING AND TIME CONSUMING BUT IT MEANS THAT THE YUKON LEATHER HAS A SLIGHT VINTAGE LOOK WHICH WILL ONLY GET BETTER WITH AGE.
