These fully aniline, full grain hides come from a fantastic tannery and are both soft and smooth. The richness of the colours create great depth and intensity and all have their own growth marks, slight colour variations and natural, individual patterns which provide immediate character. This product does not offer any real protection to the wet and will therefore watermark. Some resistance can be gained by applying a protector. We have found that the most satisfactory results come from an application of Collonil Classic Waterstop which is available generally on the internet. If you are happy to treat this with care, the rewards are worthwhile. They are beautiful, delightful to touch and will age gracefully. That’s why they are in our pockets when we play and include them in our range. Lined with traditional tan calf.
