"Liscio" means "smooth" in Italian. The leather used in this series is "Vachetta leather" which has been introduced in Tuscany, Italy since the early 9th century. Leather tanned with natural tree tannins and thoroughly impregnated with oil. The most distinctive feature is the use of beef leg oil in the fatliquoring process, and it has a unique suppleness. Beef leg oil does not easily penetrate into leather, and it takes time to soak the fiber deep. However, once penetrated, it is hard to come off, and you can enjoy moist and glossy leather almost permanently.
With its smoothness that sticks to it, it has a beautiful and deeply beautiful color and stands out among the many Italian leathers.
Deepening colors and aging
Vivid and transparent coloring is done only with dyes. The scratches and stains remain as they are because they are not hidden by embossing or pigment. However, the fact that you can enjoy the texture of raw leather as it is is the proof that it is the highest quality natural leather. Please accept scratches and stains as a unique character.
The leather finished with dye deepens the color as you use it, and you can enjoy aging. When it comes to aging, there is no leather to the right of Vachetta leather. It is beautiful, and the color and luster deepen in a short time.
Because it is a leather that grows together, it is also a great gift for a new start such as enrollment, promotion, or employment.
Smooth and sticky texture. There is a transparent feeling that you can see the expression of the raw leather. The more you use it, the deeper the color and luster.
Cammello(Camel): Classic color. Gradually beautiful candy.
Fragola(Strawberry): From bright vermilion to deep brick.
Piombo(lead): From gray brown to deep dark brown with low saturation
Lattuga(lettuce): From beautiful young leaf color to olive color with deep luster.
Agave(Agave): Blue-green gradually darkens.
Nero(black): From matte expression to gradually glossy black.
No oil care required
I think that the surface of ordinary leather is shiny from the beginning. However, the oil on the surface volatilizes over time, loses its luster and becomes dry. That is why regular oil care is essential.
This leather has a matte look with no luster. This is because even if you do not apply oil to the surface, the oil will soak into the fibers and the leather will not dry. The more you use it, the oil contained inside will ooze out from the pores and coat the epidermis to give it a glossy appearance. Therefore, no oil care is needed.
Please note that adding ready-made leather oil may cause the leather to become over-oiled and become too soft.
Doing nothing and giving the leather a moderate stimulus is the best maintenance.
The surface is soft and easily scratched because it is not coated, but some scratches will recover naturally if rubbed with a finger. Deep wounds become familiar with aging and change into leather texture.
About white powder
Since it is a very oily leather, the oil component that oozes out from the pores may become white powder depending on the temperature, humidity and ventilation conditions.
This is the same phenomenon as bridle leather bloom, etc., not a product defect.
It is especially noticeable in winter, when the temperature is low, and it may look like a mold, but it can be easily wiped off with a soft cloth. (Parts that are difficult to remove finely, such as stitches, disappear when heated.)
These symptoms are one of the good properties of oily leather. We appreciate your understanding.
