WITH OPTIONAL GRIP IN METAL, INNOVATIVE, ERGONOMIC AND STYLISH GRIP THAT FITS THE HALF CASE DESIGN (It required 6 months of work for grip designing and production, we found this metal grip the most ergonomic we have ever tried, it is slim and do not add bulkness to half case, but is very ergonomic and studied exactly for being holded by fingers while keeping the index finger on shutter-release button. The design fits the leica and case design. Designed by us and produced by the same company that does metal accessories for the top italian and french brands. 2 layers of painting and 1 layer of protection for avoiding the fingerprints to be left on the grip complete the manifacture)

(The orange case has a fixed length nekcstrap of 105cm)
Our leathers, our work: each our leather is worked by tannery for us following our requests, using the same traditional methods for hundreds years (all vegetable tanned, no chemicals at all).
Our leather is very thick (up to 3) and was received by natural ageing process to fit Leica owners' taste.
Our case are Hand made by some of the most skilled italian artisans with more then 30 years of experience in this field.
The inner finishing is done with an extra soft high quality porpora red suede leather(exept the camouflage who has a grey/green vintage smooth leather inner finishing) The case includes also a neck strap (circa 105cm, in a very soft leather)
Each case is unique, there arent 2 identic cases couse eache leather is unique, the aging process (also hand done) its different on each case (so some case could be more homogenous, some will have some streaks, tonality could be
different also). This is not a defect, but the result a of a long hand made hand work, we dont produce hundreds of "identical copies" like in a industrial process.
Vegetable Tanned Leather:
This type of natural tanning proess uses tannin extracted from plants (mimosa, chestnut, quebracho, tara, etc etc). Vegetable tannage is a very old procedure dating back to prehistoric period, a very slow process wich is considered an art. The formulas used by each Tuscan tannery is a well kept secret, a result of a careful blending of Tuscan culture and knowledge, passed down through the years from father to son.
Each skin is unique: this uniqueness means that it does not have a uniform apperance, which represents the leather quality. THe exclusive material is subject to the same wear as the person who use our half cases, the skin will gradually acquires that worn look who every person get with the life.
TESTA DI MORO WAXED :
A beautiful Glossy leather that usually we use in our limited vintaged edition cases. It's a dark brown with many tonalities from light brown /chocolate up to black. Perfect for who can't decide between brown and black. Its a Glossy leather, red suede leather inner finishing.
This is our exclusive leather, no one in the world produce half cases with this leather, couse its very rare and very costly;it require 2 months of work and there is only one tannery in all tuscany able to produce this according to a tradition dated back at the beginning of '800 We are talking about skins tanned with trunk,rind and chestunt extracts...impregnated in wooden barrels with animal fats,with a capability to do up themselves also after years rubbing them with a cloth and bees wax.. let's say that this is a color that its perfect for who cant decide between a Black or a Brown case. INNER FINISHING IN EXTRA SOFT PORPORA RED SUEDE LEATHER
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...
