Mottainai Market] Tsutsumu® A3 - Foschia
The leather of SYRINX's collection "Foschia" is white waxed (waxed) and has a look like a morning mist. The more the leather is used, the more the wax on the surface rubs off and permeates the leather, giving it a translucent appearance.
This document case is made of a luxurious single piece of high quality leather with the idea of " wrapping important documents with the best materials. Due to the large size of the leather, it is difficult to avoid unevenness in the wax, and we are selling those with particularly pronounced unevenness at a special price at the Mottainai Market. There is no functional hindrance.
From Mist to Gloss
Although the wax before penetration will show noticeable scuff marks, the wax will soak into the entire leather as it is used, and will gradually blend in. The unevenness of the wax at the beginning of purchase will become more uniform as the leather ages.
In order to distinguish it from regular products, "M" is stamped on the inside.
- The degree and position of unevenness of the wax may vary depending on the product.
- The types and colors of the products we handle are biased and the number of products is limited.
- Points will be awarded for the purchase of this product as usual.

We want to use up the life we have been given with care.
Leather from cows and pigs is made from the byproduct of meat processing. We do not take life just for the sake of leather products. And when the skins are discarded, the process places a heavy burden on the environment.
Leather is an environmentally friendly recycled material that embodies the spirit of " Mottainai ".
SYRINX, while being aware of the trends surrounding leather products, will continue to use leather with care and gratitude for the lives it has given us as long as the meat culture continues.
Foschia is the Italian word for "fog. Foschia is characterized by a white wax-covered look like morning mist. The more the leather is used, the more the wax permeates the leather, giving it a translucent appearance.
Tanning and Manufacturing
The leather is made from the shoulders of adult Scandinavian cows. After vegetable tanning, the surface is lightly buffed and white waxed. The tanning material used is cod, a legume native to South America. Although rare, it is the lightest colored vegetable tannin and has a lightfast finish. It can be tanned whiter than usual, and the beautiful light color is achieved using only dyes, not pigments.
Wax gradually permeates into the leather, giving it an elegant and natural shine. Since it also contains a moderate amount of oil, oil care is not necessary unless you are concerned about scratches or dryness.
Light colors have a delicate surface and are more prone to stains and scratches, so care should be taken when handling them.
Natural markings may be noticeable.
