by Astell&Kern

The surface of the leather is dyed one at a time by leather craftsmen and also has a natural two-tone effect that adds to the sensation of depth in the leather.
Established in 1973 in San Miniato, Tuscany, Walpier Tannery is in business for three generations and has a long tradition of manufacturing leather products based on a vegetable tanning process.
The tannery handles 100% cow-haired leather imported from France and is a subsidiary of Vera Pelle, the Italian Association of Vegetable Leather Tanners.
The traditional vegetable tanning technology of Tuscany Belly has been handed down from father to son in the Tuscany region for centuries.
The tanning process requires 40 days by putting raw leather in a drum with natural tanning extracted from a variety of trees.
This is a method of processing only used by the world's Italian tanners.
