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.

Tannery: Badalassi Carlo (Italy)
Temper: Soft
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 with a fragrant scent

dauphin grey, custard, Prussian blue

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.
