LEATHER USED FOR DUNGAREES & BACKPACKS:
The leather dungarees and backpacks are made from cowhide leather from Germany and Italy.
The leather is water repellent, especially wear-resistant and breathable.
The tanning and dyeing process of the leathers is ecologically safe and free from harmful chemicals (such as AZO colors, Chrome IV). Detailed product information about our leathers.
Don’t wash. Clean with moistened cloth, if necessary. Before first use, we recommend to treat the leather with leather grease or other leather care, so it remains dirt and water repellent for a long time.
LEATHER USED FOR SANDALS:
For the leather sandals we use “oil pull-up” cowhide leather from North-America with a matte finish.
Thick, yet soft and supple to the touch (leather thickness ca. 2,5 mm). Durable, breathable, water repellent to a certain degree. “Oil pull-up” leather is a full aniline leather, which is deeply
impregnated with natural-based oils instead of being coated with paints and pigments.
The leather sandals require little maintenance. Clean with moistened cloth, if necessary. Don’t use detergents, soaps or chemicals to clean the surface, as they will tend to remove the natural oils in the leather.
