The first of the leather specification changes to the Liscio series, which we recently announced, is Lo Stivale, and the Bordeaux color of the HITOE FOLD will be the first to arrive.
Lo Stivale, a tannery that produces only vachetta leather, is one of the most established tanneries in the industry as one of the three tanning families (Badarassi, Lo Stivale, Tempesti) in Santa Croce, Italy.
Although not yet well known inJapan, we found this tannery by chance when we were looking for a leather for HITOE FOLD to replace Elvamat.
Compared to Elvamat, HITOE FOLD has a stronger and firmer image. Therefore, the outer leather is thinner than before, about 1.7~1.8mm, and the inside is thinner than before, about 1.0mm, giving a slightly slimmer overall impression.
The specifications have also been slightly improved to match the change in leather.
The back side has a polished finish, which reduces the risk of snagging when inserting banknotes. The leather is dyed through the core (dyed all the way through the leather), and even the back of the thinly strained leather is dyed beautifully.
The Bordeaux color will be available in a limited quantity of about 40 pieces. We recommend that you register for restocking notifications if you wish to purchase.
The second shipment will be Natural, made of Conceria 800 leather.
