TYPE: Soft and supple leather, very vintage look.
CHARACTER: This Vintage Concrete leather has a wonderful natural appearance and produces a unique worn-in effect with time and wear. This sort of aniline leather is a type of leather dyed exclusively with soluble dyes without covering the surface with a topcoat paint or insoluble pigments. The resulting product retains the hide’s natural surface with the grain, i.e. visible pores, scars etc. of the complete original animal’s skin structure showing. These are no flaws, but part of the natural product.
This leather is one of my favourites. It molds super pretty, and the more and more vintage character the leather gets by simply using it is unique.
CHOOSABLE: Check the customizable bags for all available options. Because of its leather characteristic, each part of each unique bag has its own range of available leathers.
SUSTAINABLE LEATHER: All leathers I use are top / full grain leather, Nautic Leather too. Durability and lifespan of a bag are very important to me. Because I make every bag or accessory myself, I have control over every step of the process, sustainability at its best. I use leather that is a by-product of the food industry. And I barely throw anything away and turn leather scraps into purses and accessories.
Leather is not only practical and pretty, but I believe it can be an emotional material too. Because bags, made of real leather, are getting more beautiful by wearing and aging, while you get more and more attached to your bag. Is there any other practical fashion accessory which gets that attached to you? It deserves a meaningful material!
* Please note that colours may look slightly different, because of screen display. Also, exact colours can vary slightly because of the dye-process of the leather. I do my best to show most accurate colours so you can make the best decisions for your handmade unique Cin-bag.
