How have your leather jackets and leather products changed, and what kind of expressions do they have?
It varies depending on the tanning method and whether it is pigmented or not,
Even if the product is the same, it may vary depending on the person wearing it, how often it is worn, the environment in which it is worn, and how it is maintained.
No two will be the same.
If you have a chance to see leather products displayed in stores, you can decide based on the first impression.
Of course, it's good, but it's even more fun if you imagine how it will change over time.
This time, I would like to introduce some of the changes in Kadoya products over time.
・HF/AW-1VS: Uses vintage steer
It has a texture that deepens as it is used, which is described as ``the bottom becomes glossy,'' and it is flexible, has high strength, and is resistant to water.
(worn for 13 years)
・Ad9R: Uses oiled vintage steer
Although it contains a lot of oil and is strong, it has a unique flavor with a moist and transparent feel.
(worn for 1 year and 3 months)
Wrinkles that occur as you wear them and shades that occur due to rubbing.
By carving them little by little, it becomes a piece with a rich taste.
・KA-VOGEL: Uses pull-up oil leather (upper part)
When the leather is pulled or bent, oil oozes out and changes the color of the surface.
The name comes from the "pull-up effect."
It brings about rich changes in the expression of the leather without any care.
(worn for 7 years)
The beautiful leather products that we usually see in stores can be said to be "unfinished products."
Leather products that have changed over time are very attractive.
Over time, the same thing transforms into something unique.
