Tanning is the process of turning skin into leather and using it as a tool.
There are various methods such as vegetable tannin, chrome tanning using basic chromium sulfate, and hybrids of both.
The tanning process is essential because the leather will rot or harden if left untreated.
By slowly infiltrating the tanned leather with a special blend of oils and fats, a one-of-a-kind leather is created. The
type is designed using the latest engineering.
Since it is a sandal, even though the part that holds the foot is kept to a minimum, it feels like it is tightly wrapped and held.

What is Nigel Cabourn
World famous for vintage military, workwear and outdoor wear Collection of British designer Nigel Cabourn who is also a collector.
Inspired by the vintage collection of over 4000 items that he has collected over the past 30 years, his collection transcends time and is reborn into something new.
It is very characteristic that Nigel divides his own designs into British production (authentic line) and Japan production (main line).
For the former, we mainly use British-origin materials such as Harris Tweed and Ventile, and items that are produced in Mackintosh factories and knit factories in Scotland. By sorting out items that utilize dyeing and processing techniques that cannot be realized, we create a collection that cannot be found anywhere else.
