The calf leather used for the runway bags and collection bags has a particular shiny double tone look. The leather is tumbled in order to remove the natural grain. Skins are first waxed in wooden barrels and prepared to be dyed. To finish the process the leather is treated giving it a shiny polished look by pressing a large hot plate on the leather, ironing it.
The ruched pleating detail at the top of the bag is created using a special hand-technique. While the leather is still wet, it is treated with a glue-like liquid that makes the leather pliable. While it is still wet, a thin pointed bone is used to create each individual pleat against the leather.
