The secret behind the incredible softness and lightness: drum beating
“Drum beating” is a process where the leather is gently beaten in a drum without water. Its unique texture is achieved using the most cutting-edge equipment which allows temperature and humidity to be controlled freely, making subtle adjustments based on many years of experience.
The secret behind the beautifully flat surface: iron finish
The leather is ironed to provide a beautifully flat surface. Kimoto Leatherworks uses several different types of irons that have been employed for many years. The finishing process, which requires extraordinary expertise, is a true work of art.
The secret behind the vivid colors and smoothness: semi-aniline finish
After applying an aniline dye, a thin layer of special transparent pigment is sprayed onto the surface. This process removes any scratches and wrinkles from the leather surface, giving it a luxurious appearance and excellent color.
