One of the main features of this Split Toe design is the apron. A beautifully crafted, 100% hand-sewn pie-crust apron. The amount of technique and work required to produce such a nice apron is immense (because of that the production of this specific style is strictly limited) but the result is totally worth it.
Not all skins are suitable to produce this special apron, the tightest fiber structure and optimal thickness are a must.
Also, introducing for the first time the Utah grain from Tanneries Haas. A beautiful double tanned French calf & printed with a beautiful Hatchgrain pattern, which is considered to be the one best calf available.
It is exclusively sourced from Tanneries Haas in the beautiful region de l’Alsace in France. This leather is entirely full grain and made with traditional Alsatian tanning techniques. The leather is through-dyed, double tanned (chrome tanned & vegetable re-tanned with a blend of chestnut, quebracho & mimosa) and hot stuffed with a mix of greases to nourish the leather, which provide the leather its distinctive, beautiful & rich glow, mellow touch & exceptional softness. Its distinctive grain & natural finish (achieved thanks to the veg-tanning) allow the development of a beautiful & aggressive patina that will make every single pair unique & interesting over the time.
