Hitoe Fold Aria -Monocromo- is made of a very different type of leather.
All of our previous products were vegetable tanned leather finished only with dyes. The leather is characterized by its transparency, color and luster that increases with age, and moist texture, allowing you to enjoy the good qualities of the leather. On the other hand, it has the disadvantages of being easily scratched and vulnerable to water and dirt.
The newly adopted leather is tanned with a synthetic tannin called white tannin. It is then barrel-dyed with dye (aniline) and finished by spraying it with pigments five times. As a result, it is resistant to water, dirt, scratches, and heat, and shows almost no change over time due to aging.
The raw hides are single-butt, which is the back side of the girth. This is the part of the raw hides with the highest fiber density. It is also grained by drum beating. The grain finish prevents scratches and wrinkles from becoming visible and keeps the hides beautiful for a long time. Above all, the fibers of single batt are delicate, so it is possible to obtain a beautiful expression of fine wrinkles.
