Title: Chromexcel

Leather talk again
and this time it Chromexcel
from Horween of USA.
It is one of their representative leathers like Cordovan
and it is soft, supple, and heat resistant
also being relatively lightweight.

This season this is used for our lace up boot BEETLE.
It can be said that this material is perfect for boots
in how it does not give a bulky appearance and
when you put them on, they fit and feel well.

Actually, this has been used on the BAGUETTE
and it is becoming a standard for leather at WTAPS.

Title: Buttero

The longer you use, the more it fits the user
and depending on the use the expression changes…
This is what leather is all about.

Most of this season’s leather accessories
are made with the material called buttero from Italy.
A high quality tanned leather rich in oil with
restoring properties in which scratches smooth over time,
and a trademark dull luster which appears with use.

These have been made by downtown Tokyo craftsmen
whose careful work matches the quality of material.
