A hide from Louisiana

The hide used here is a large scaled skin from Louisiana. The skin is sourced from breeding farms approved by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Federal Agency, adhering to CITES, a treaty to protect endangered animals and plants. Every farm undergoes regular audits to ensure their continuous adherence to Jean Rousseau's ethical code and values. Once skinned, the byproduct is used in local cuisine.

A meticulous preparation

The preparation of the hide is an essential stage. It is tanned using tanning agents in Jean Rousseau's own manufacture in France. The hide is then solid dyed, before a pigment-based surface treatment is applied to highlight the beauty of the material. Working on hides involves an alchemy that evolves constantly thanks to the innovations introduced by the Manufacture.

Handmade in the U.S.

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 leather together. The watch strap is then checked by experts for quality control. The result is an extremely luxurious watch strap. Beautiful large square scales (the most valued part of the leather) are featured on the upper and small round scales are featured on the lining. Elegant hand stitching completes the look and the result is magnificent.
