GRIP: the new optional grip in brass designed and produced by us is now available. It's a black matte color (going toward anthracite) that fits perfectly with the Leica. We already produced in the past a similar grip and was a big success; now the new one is refined and improved; it's smaller with a better ergonomy. Why we are using this grip instead of other systems embedded under leather? because this gives a better grip on fingers and remains very small. Actually available with black leather cases.
Vegetable Tanned Leather:
This natural tanning process uses tannin extracted from plants (mimosa, chestnut, quebracho, tara, etc., etc.). Vegetable tannage is a very old procedure dating back to the prehistoric period, a very slow process that is considered an art. The formulas used by each Tuscan tannery are a well-kept secret, a result of a careful blending of Tuscan culture and knowledge passed down through the years from father to son.
Each skin is unique: this uniqueness means that it does not have a uniform appearance, representing the leather quality. The exclusive material is subject to the same wear as the person who uses our half cases, the skin will gradually acquire that worn look that every person gets with life.
Vegetable-tanned leather absorbs the traces of our life; it matures, it tans under the sun, it reveals the signs of time, and use as the most personal expression of naturalness and truth.
*Note: few types of leather like exotic (crocodile, lizard, snakes) and French leathers are not vegetable tanned.
