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 and has a fragrant scent.

dauphin grey, custard, Prussian blue

All of our products are hand made with traditional leather crafting techinques. They are cut, saddle stitched and burnished by hand. Each product will have slight variations from one another due to this hand made process. Our stock of leathers are sourced from the finest tanneries around the world. They are full grain which tend to have different characteristics within each hide. The combination of this process results in a unique feeling between every product.
