Literally fabulous. Clothes made of genuine chamois tanned leather.
Chamois tanning is one of the tanningcraft’s most complicated ”age-old processes“that produce more beautifuland long-lasting leather than their ”moreadvanced“ successors – nowadays,there are few tanners left who have masteredit.
Kolesch in Baden-Württemberg is theonly tannery in Germany that still usesthe elaborate process, which takes anentire year: first, the skin is stored inthe hide, in a pit filled with white lime,then, it is stretched on a tanner’s treeso that it opens. The preservative effectstems from the oxidation of animal fatsand oils, which are mechanically incorporatedinto the skin’s fibres. In this case,it is codfish oil that is pressed betweenthe fibres of the “opening”, usinga centuries-old hammering device.With time, the fats turn the chamoistanned buckskin into an unmatchedpieceof leather clothing. It is nearly indestructible,yet soft, warm, almostwoolly to the touch, and capable ofregulatingtemperature. It does not losethis quality during the dyeing process:chamois leather is dyed solely with pigments,which are regularly incorporatedinto the material and after fusing withammonia, are no longer soluble inwater.
