Sheep bred in France

Sheepleather is known for its softness and durability. It's also the lightest of all commercial leathers. It also has great insulating properties and absorbs perspiration of the wearer into the fibers. The sheep used here roam in the region of Les Causses, France, located in the heart of France. There, the sheep walk the mountains to find their food, which is why their leather is naturally resistant.

A private tannery

In Chapal's tannery in Crocq, France, craftsmen are witnesses of ancestral traditions. The sheepleather hides are immersed in wood barrels where leather is separated from wool before being tanned with chrome or vegetable ingredients, a process that alters the leather and makes it more durable. The leather is then deeply coloured using warm water, colouring and nourishment. The perfect shade comes after several trials. The leathers are then naturally dried, hanging in oper air spaces. To obtain a glossy sheepleather, craftsmen use a heating press to give the leather a flat surface and a surface coating. Follows a selection of the skins based on the thickness and shades.

A work of art

Using a blade and a wooden pattern, the cutter starts his work, cutting close to 32 pieces in total to make the jacket. The seamstress then applies a band on the edges to reinforce stitching, and assembles pockets and lining. Using a sewing machine, she sows the jacket on the reverse side. The lining is in cotton. 16 hours of work are needed for this piece. The final control is an extremely delicated dask, where the worker in charge of choosing the hides inspects garment before giving the final patina and polish by hand. From A to Z, each piece is made by the same person.
