Minerva Box

Produced by the world famous Badalassi Carlo tannery, Minerva Box in our opinion is the best naturally tumbled vegetable tanned shoulder available on the market. The grain is not printed and will therefore vary from skin to skin and within the skin itself. Each hide is treated with extracts of trunk and bark inside wood barrels, greased with a mixture of animal fats and then coloured in a drum. Pulling up the skin beneath will reveal a depth of rich colour. Rubbing the skins with a dry cloth will burnish it brighter as well as moving the colour darker. Minerva box can be treated with natural creams and waxes.
