Box Calf Leather – Whats the big deal?
Roomten Bespoke has partnered with a century-old tannery in Italy, providing the best high-grade full-grain Box calf leather! Full-Grain leather has not undergone any sanding or treatment, this means it’s more durable, breathable and wearable. The end product being a stylish, comfortable to wear, long lasting shoe!
Our search for superior higher-grade leather is our never-ending story. As a bespoke footwear company and tailor finding quality materials; whether that be leather or the finest wools, is at the heart of our core values.
The tannery dates back more than 100 years ago. It was founded in 1865 and has been dedicated – exclusively – to the tanning of superior quality leather.
They have specialized on calfskin tanning with chrome salts, a technique they have mastered over the years. Heritage traditions are merged with the latest Italian techniques and innovations, which have been adopted by the tannery owners, always driven by an everlasting itch for perfection.
At the tannery, they thoroughly trace and control every production step, starting from the earliest calf selection process at the slaughterhouse to the color dyeing process and finishing. Their production volume is admittedly low, which makes their product more valuable and in great demand.
