Burro (Ghost Wax)

Burro by Conceria Walpier is also known as ‘Ghost’ or ‘Ghost Buttero’. The ghost name derives from the white wax that is applied to the surface of the leather. The white wax finish will naturally patina over time gradually revealing the beautiful base colour beneath. If you want to expose the colour yourself, simply buff with a clean dry cloth to leave a burnished bright sheen. These full grain smooth shoulders are 100% vegetable tanned with a medium to firm handle. Suitable for an extensive range of leathergoods.

Conceria Walpier is a tannery based in the Tuscany region of Italy. The tannery was founded in 1973 by the current owners father after a long personal experience in the tanning sector. All the leathers produced are 100% vegetable tanned on cow or bull hides. Known famously across the world for their wonderful articles in traditional smooth, embossed and tumbled leathers suitable for belts, handbags and leathergoods.
