A calf from Europe
The calf used here by Jean Rousseau is sourced from European farms, and adheres to Jean Rousseau's ethical code and values.
A meticulous preparation
The calf is tanned using tanning agents in Jean Rousseau's own manufacture in France. The calf is then solid dyed, before a pigment-based surface treatment is applied to highlight the beauty of the material. Working on skins involves an alchemy that evolves constantly thanks to the innovations introduced by the Manufacture.
A rigorous finishing
The leather is then passed on to extremely high tech machines, that cut the leather, before being passed on to highly skilled artisans in the manufacture that hand stitch the calf leather and the goat lining together. The cardholder is then checked by experts for quality control.
