Crafted in Italy and inspired by classic Scottish tradition, Highland is a seductively creamy leather with a light transparent finish projecting the beauty of nature's canvas. It is lightly milled and sheened with natural oils and waxes providing a rich texture and sultry soft hand. Natural visible markings and other signatures of nature are characteristics to be appreciated and confirm its true identity. Over time, a rich patina will develop reflecting the lifestyle of its user. Highland is produced using only the finest hand selected European raw material.
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.
