LEATHER HALF CASES for LEICA M10
all handstitched case with inclusive a tripod screw and lcd Backdoor
with optional metal grip
The new M10 case will benefit of a total renewed constructions and procedure, since the camera is very slim we are doing a slimmer half case,and especially the leather get a new "special treatment" that force the leather to take the shape of the camera (it's a old secret practiced from hundreds of years between tuscan leather artisans....)
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)
NOTE: THE NECKSTRAP IS NOT INCLUDED AND IS AN OPTIONALE, IF YOU WANT TO BUY YOU CAN ORDER THE SPECIAL MODEL THAT FIT TOGETHER WITH THE HALF CASE (NOT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ORDER THE NECKSTRAP STAND ALONE, THIS VERSION IN THIS PAGE IS POSSIBLE TO ORDER ONLY IF YOU ORDER ALSO A HALF CASE
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.
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...
