Made in France & Switzerland

Made with 100% bull calf

Perfect for a light pocket!

A calf from Europe

The calf leather used here comes from a remarkable bull-calf hide from priviledged breeding in France, Switzerland and Germany. This is how J.Hopenstand is able to get high-quality hides spared of any scar, scratch or assault.

A long tanning process

The hide is then sent to the tanneries in France, where thanks to alchemists, the delicate hide is turned into a strong piece of leather. First, the hide is cleaned with water and rendered flexible, before being exposed to tanning agents. The wet-blue hide is then immersed into grinders, exposed to chromium suplhate and water, and left to ripe. The hide is now a piece of leather that can be dyed in the grinder, nourished with oil, and dried and stretched. The next step for one side of the belt is to dampen and grain the leather.

A perfect cutting

The best artisans from France and Switzerland, issued from Compagnons du Devoir and Meilleurs Ouvriers de France associations of highly skilled craftsmen, can finally cut the leather, put together, thread and sew the cardholder. The edges of the piece are sanded and coloured up to five times. The lining is made of leather and a special anti-RFID folio to protect your data.

 
SIZE & FIT
10 cm x 8 cm.
 
DETAILS & CARE
Care advice:
1. Slightly moisten a smooth cotton cloth
2. Gently rub the leather in circles
3. Let it dry for 5 minutes
4. Use the dry part of your cotton cloth to polish your leather and make it shine. In case of a greasy stain, do not use water to clean it. Instead, wipe the stain with a cotton cloth and cover it with with "Terre de Sommières" powder for 5 to 10 minutes.
Do not hesitate to repeat until stain is gone.
