BLACK:our best quality Black leather, very soft leather that produce a beautiful case with very confortable neck strap, with a beautiful irregular texture, not matte not glossy, impregnated with animal fats during the work in tannery, with a incredible smell of leather (sorry you cant smell from your pc monitor..this is a pity) Using black leather is a risk, since if its cheap its visible at first "touch", well we have seen hundreds of black leathers here in Tuscany when we visit tanneries, and we can assure you that you will not find any other black of this quality around... A classic color...or better to say ..A MUST!
