Minerva Box and Mousse - Badalassi Carlo
Minerva Box and Mousse is a milled grain leather from Badalassi Carlo. Milling is a process that allows individual hide to produce its own naturally unique grain. Sizing and irregularity is variable and will depend on the dermal fiber and thickness of the hides. Unlike Perlinger's shrunken calf the Minerva Box and Mousse is vegetable tanned which allows it to develop character and patina over time. The surface is smooth and lustrous with high fat content to accentuate its colour with prolonged use.
Minerva Box and Mousse both are tanned in a similar fashion but the latter is naturally thinner and has double the milling time.
Available colours: natural brown, wine, terracotta, prussian blue, dauphin grey, custard (new)
Tannery: Badalassi Carlo (Italy)
Surface: milled, natural grain varying on pattern and intensity
Tanning: vegetable tan
Patina: Excellent, deepens colour while accentuating grain
Other notes: naturally soft feel, slightly bouncy and fragrant smell
