Saddle Calf is a French natural full-grain leather, a standard for luxury saddlers.
We love its natural feel, softness, and its round grain, as well as the way it takes color beautifully and develops a lovely patina with age, which is why we also choose it for leather goods.
This specific tanning process creates a smooth and slight grain and ensures that each skin is unique and every product is a one-of-a-kind.
Our Saddle Calf comes from an Alsatian tannery which has been managed by the same family since the 16th century.
Guardians of a unique artisanal tradition, each generation has made modern improvements while protecting and passing along its knowledge. Today, the tannery is one of two global sources for this standard-setting natural calf.
The supple structure of Saddle Calf with its roundness and sensuality is particularly adapted to leather goods. A beautiful shine develops with age.
Its finish is sensitive to scratches. (See Care Instructions.)
In order to preserve the beauty of your leather products, we recommend that you note the following advice:
◌ Take care not to scratch or rub your product against abrasive surfaces ;
◌ Protect your product from humidity and direct heat like radiators or the insides of cars in summer ;
◌ Avoid contact with the following products : liquid, hand cream, hand antiseptics, makeup and perfume ;
◌ Should the bag come into contact with water, dry it far from sources of direct heat. Once dry, if the leather has not obtained its natural suppleness you can apply, with a soft cloth, a milk makeup cleanser with a neutral pH throughout. Begin with an area non-visible to test the reaction of the leather and if this succeeds it will accelerate the natural patina ;
◌ In order to clean the leather, we advise you to wipe it with a soft, slightly humid cloth. Once dry, you can apply a milk makeup cleanser with a neutral pH throughout. Begin with an area non-visible to test the reaction of the leather and if this succeeds it will accelerate the natural patina.
