Buttero - Conceria Walpier

The famed buttero leather from Conceria Walpier. Smooth surface and bright vibrant colours, this leather patinas with plenty of character. Firm temper that ages beautifully over time.

Nabuk is a buffed version of Conceria Walpier's vegetable tanned cowhide with a smooth and velvety soft nap. It is buffed on the grain side making the nap much shorter and less fuzzier compared to suede (buffed on the flesh side).

Rocky (new) is a heavy vachetta tanned bullhide from Conceria Walpier. This leather is soft with a very gentle touch due to the higher oil content in the tanning process. It is traditionally used for belts but works beautifully on small goods as it ages similarly to buttero without being extra firm.

Available colours: natural, black, dauphin grey, fauve, chocolate,  wheat, coffee, orange, red, yellow, forest green, purple, navy, salmon, oxblood, dark navy (new). Eggshell (Nabuk), deep brown (Rocky).

Tannery: Conceria Walpier (Italy)
Temper: Very firm (buttero & nabuk), medium (rocky)
Surface: Uniform, smooth
Tanning: Mixed vegetable retan
Patina: Excellent, will develop natural shine and deepen colour over time
Other notes: Available in bold vibrant colours, known for its excellent temper and beautiful aging properties

All of our products are hand made with traditional leather crafting techniques using leathers sourced from the finest tanneries in the world. They are cut, saddle stitched and burnished by hand. Each product will have slight variations from one another due to this hand made process. The leathers we use are full grain which will show variations within each hide. This results in a unique feeling between every product.
