Buffalo leather with a clearly defined but contradictory identity, rugged and untamed yet soft and velvety to feel. A manifesto of natural leather, unrefined, naked and unapologetic on the surface allowing for assimilation of moments of daily living and the revealing of natural characteristics. A leather that will mature and assume the character of its owner.
