Italian label Sturlini uses locally sourced deerskin leather for its supple texture, breathability and softness from the first wear. It is durable but can be less resistant to harsh conditions and rubbing than other leathers such as calfskin, requiring additional care to ensure its longevity. We suggest periodically applying neutral silicone-based creams with a soft cotton cloth.
The leather is vegetable-tanned through a traditional process, giving it a rich depth of colour and unique variations – this can make the colour more sensitive to heat, sunlight and water than chemical tanning. If the leather does get wet, allow it to dry out at room temperature.
