The leather of our products is very natural.
The lack of artificial pigments to avoid a uniform and impersonal look.
Our skins are tanned in the old style, allowing us to appreciate the different nuances in shades and textures, without masking their original character.
That is why our shoes age with the nobility of a good piece of furniture, in which during their lifetime of use, they can change their tones on the surfaces of more friction.
If they are not kept in dry places, they may appear whitish-looking moisture spots that are easily removed by wiping them with a dry cloth.
Applying creams with natural anilines, colorless or to the skin tone, will always be a good nutrient to help the shoe to maintain its liveliness and thus recover areas with scratches or more rubbing.
After giving cream to the shoes and after a few minutes better brush them with a brush of natural ropes such as horsehair, the synthetic hair brushes can damage the surface.
The leather "Flor" is the outermost layer of the animal skin, and the Nobuck is the name that receives this leather "Flor" after a careful process of sanding and polishing until it acquires a smooth and homogeneous texture.
This sanding process gives the Nobuck a velvety appearance, giving it a very soft touch texture and an esthetic appearance, as well as makes this skin more breathable and light, which has positive and negative things. On one hand, this outermost part of the skin is more waterproof (than non-waterproof), but polishing makes it more susceptible to external factors such as dust or light, so if maintained in a constant sun exposure may discolor more easily than other types of skins.

A part from Nobuck, the split leather (Suede) is in the inner part of the skin, that is the resultant part of cutting the thickest skin longitudinally, and obtaining different layers.
This leather for shoes is much more resistant but also that makes it a little heavier and harder, although it is possible to say that in Suede leather, the closer part to the outside of the skin, is thinner and have a high level of quality, as well as higher price. When the resulting skin is from the lower layers closest to the flesh, it will be a heavier and coarser skin, so its quality and price will decrease.
This type of shoe split leather is widely used thanks to its resistance to shocks and habitual use.
+ Inner part of the skin, the result of sawing it in layers.

Ante leather is the result of turning the skin and working with the part in contact with the flesh. This skin is characterized by being very soft and very thin. It is one of the highest quality skins, as well as one of the most aesthetic.
The concept "ante" comes from the antelope since its process arose from the use of the skin of this animal, although currently the name "ante" is maintained even if skins like lamb or goat are used. (It is now prohibited to make use of the skin of antelopes as an animal in danger of extinction)
Although the Ante leather is not overly sturdy and requires greater care for proper maintenance after prolonged use, the quality and softness of the Ante leather make it an ideal skin for high-end shoes.
