Dakar begins with Italy's finest hides. It's sumptuous, full grain leather inspired by 1930's era luxury Italian luggage. Utilizing original tanning recipes, it fuses artisan techniques with modern processing procedures. A light clear waxy finish highlights the natural sophistication of this vacuum dried leather. Characteristics such as healed scars, insect marks and other signatures of nature add character and beauty to the finish. Dakar is suitable for most hospitality, executive contract and residential applications.
REACH (EC 1907/2006) compliant production aims to improve the protection of human and environmental health. Processed using low emission mineral tanning formulas which are environmentally respectful, the hides are retanned in aged oak drums using vegetable agents, natural fat liquors, oils and dyes that ensure the leather is properly through dyed. Natural color variations may occur even within the same dye lot.
