Diesel is a pure, drum-dyed, mineral-tanned, aniline leather. This exceptional leather is made from raw material from African “wildlife” cattle and all of the natural features have intentionally been retained. These features, such as scars, insect bites, neck and fattening creases, tears from thorns and insect bites, etc. are proof of this leather’s promised naturalness and intentional expressiveness and can therefore obviously not be recognised as a complaint. The special appearance of this “old-fashioned” leather is created by treatment with certain waxes and oils, as well as subsequent off-pressing of the hides. Pull-up and crackled effects are characteristic of this leather.
