La Perla Azzurra Alaska(Alaska)

La Perla Azzurra (La Perla Azzurra) was founded in 1967 in Santa Croce, Tuscany, Italy, the birthplace of vegetable tanning. It is a long-established tanner that has been producing the finest Italian leather using thick, high-quality raw hides from France and kepracho tannin from Argentina, which has been carefully selected.
In Alaska, the surface is waxed and then put on a drum to create a textured texture. The expression is like a silvery Alaskan ice land. Wild natural grain is attractive.
A member of the Italian Vegetable Tannin Leather Association.


Deepening colors and aging

As you use it, the wax on the surface will rub off and disappear. The original expression of leather appears, as in Alaska in spring when nature began to look out from white snow.
The feature is that it is hard to be scratched compared to Elba mat due to the wax on the surface and natural grain. By further using it, you can deepen the color and luster and enjoy the real pleasure of aging.
Scratches and stains are not hidden by embossing or pigment, so they remain. However, it is a proof that it is the highest quality natural leather that you can enjoy the texture of the hide. We hope that you accept wounds and stains as one and only personality.
In Italy, leather-like natural texture is preferred, and the culture of enjoying aging is alive. Elbamat is one of the few Italian leathers that can inherit the Italian leather culture and enjoy its charm.
Because it is a leather that grows together, it is also a great gift for a new start such as enrollment, promotion, or employment.

AlaskaAging example

Alaska birch

Birch(birch): The wax over the soft beige is reminiscent of birch bark.
Alaska cammello Cammello(Camel): Classic color. The wax remaining on the grain is removed and gradually changes to a candy color.
Alaska grafite Grafite(graphite): Dark gray like graphite appears from under the light gray color.

No oil care required

In Alaska, plenty of oil penetrates into the fiber, and the more it is used, the more the oil contained inside seeps out from the pores and coats the epidermis, giving it a luster. The waterproof effect also increases.
Therefore, no oil care is required. Waterproof sprays and other coatings are also prohibited. The leather cannot breathe and hardens.
Doing nothing and giving the leather a moderate stimulus is the best maintenance.
