Only the very best hides meet the VIZELLO® grade, and are selected for finishing in our workshop, or as we like to call it, our 'salon'.
The leathergoods B grade of VIZELLO® calf hides have small holes or patches of missing hair.
Like wine, each season's produce is slightly different depending on climate and weather conditions. We review and adjust our tanning process each season to respect the changes in nature, before releasing our annual collection.
Our team of expert craftsmen iron, condition, and comb the calf hair, all by hand, to produce a silky soft finish. Finally the hides are trimmed and styled, ready for making into shoes, bags and other leathergoods.
We offer your choice of colouring; black and white, brown and white, ginger, and dyed solid black.
Each piece is natural so expect every hide to be a little different in colour and size (approximately 7-9sf and 100cm x 80cm).
All hides are produced in Christchurch New Zealand.
1. Shake out your the hide to remove loose dirt and dust.
2. Gently brush your hide in the direction of the hair to remove more difficult dirt and dust.
3. Clean stains with a professional carpet cleaner, and allow to air dry.
