Made in France & Switzerland

Made with 100% bull calf

Perfect for a night out

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 then 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 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 belt. The edges of the belt are sanded and coloured up to five times, the buckle hand-polished and covered with rose gold. The lining is also made of leather.

 
SIZE & FIT
Fits true to size. Width of 33 mm.
 
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.
