We are very excited to be able to offer this leather to our customers. It is called Barenia and is a Calf Skin used by an Iconic French brand in the production of their handbags and watch straps. Barenia is buttery smooth, and has a matte finish. The skin is double tanned in chrome and vegetable dyes and then soaked in a mix of nine different oils over a 5 to 6 week process. Barenia will develop a patina over time because it has no aniline finish and can absorb oil.
This is by far one of the thinnest straps that we have in our collection. Due to the double tanning and finishing process, we are able to thin the leather down to 0.8mm (finished thickness is 2.2mm, when the leather has been lined and stitched), making it a very comfortable strap to wear that will mould to the shape of your wrist over time. We chose to complete the strap with an off white classic stitch.
The straps are fully lined and come on a beautiful polished swiss buckle. The length of each half of the strap is 11.5cms and 7.5cms without the buckle.
