Laser-cutting, brushing, embossing and finishing are used to create leather with glamorous looks and textures. For the collection Allure, European calf hides are tanned and coloured. The leather is laser-cut to mimic luxurious velvet. The Italian calfskin hides in the Finesse collection are first laser-cut to impart an eye-catching texture to the leather, then brushed with a light metallic finish for a velvet-like effect. The texture is soft and inviting and, at first glance, could be mistaken for metallic velvet. Upon touch, however, a feel that it is unmistakably leather is revealed. In the Futura Corduroy collection the Italian hides have the familiar embossed pattern. The traditional corduroy gets a modern twist, however, with the addition of a metallic finish in the wales of the corduroy.
