LEATHER AND MATERIALS

Croco

This superb crocodile print leather is made with Italian cowhide, which is chrome tanned, then has an aniline glazed finish and finally is embossed with a crocodile skin pattern. This croc’ print is exquisitely done and once the leather is made into a product it becomes difficult to know it isn’t real crocodile. Truly, this is the most realistic croco print leather we have ever seen!


Panel Hide

Ettinger’s iconic panel hide is a vegetable tanned full grain cowhide. It is tanned using only natural tanning agents, essentially different types of bark and plants. Vegetable tanning is not just a very natural process, but the longer time required to tan the leather means it develops a particularly natural look and feel.
Once tanned, we then apply a waxy coloured finish on top of the panel hide, to give it it’s colour and protect the surface.
