Coal Oiled

This is a new leather I’ve bought in.. and it is utterly amazing. It’s butter soft and has a superb texture and feel. Probably one of the nicest leathers I’ve ever come across.

It is a full grain calf side, and lightly sueded to create a luxury nubuck aniline finish, however I work the leather with a custom mix of oils and waxes which makes the surface super smooth with a satin finish. The edges are left natural and are lightly roughed by dragging with a blade.

This colour is pretty much black.. it is actually a very very deep grey hide that has been oiled & waxed, resulting in a deep black satin sheen.

It is extremely comfortable straight out of the box. It is backed with the same leather and treated with leather conditioner.

The leather is unsealed, so will pick up a unique patina with use – although being oiled, it will be more patina/stain resistant than a non-oiled strap.

Thickness is about 4mm at the lugs and thins gradually to 2-2.5mm at the tip.

Strap pictured has black stitch.
If you wish, I can get hold of pretty much any colour stitch.
