What is the designation of this leather in your offer? Thanks You. Tomas

Russian Calf - J&FJ Baker - V roce 1782 byla spuštěna na vodu Holandská nákladní lod jménem Metta Catherine. Když její pro někoho zajímavý osud zkrátím, loď se s nákladem usní z Ruska po několika letech (1786) provozu potopila. Asi před dvěma lety jsem informoval na svých stránkách, že tato loď byla nalezena prozkoumána a náklad z části vytažen z moře. Pro mnoho lidí bylo velkým překvapením, že useň je po cca 240 letech ve vodě v dokonalém stavu a plně použitelná. Pár plátů usně bylo vydraženo za statisíce a zbytek byl uchován pro restaurátorské účely. Nicméně. v 17 století byla Ruská kůže velice žádána pro své vlastnosti. Především pro svojí životnost a odolnost, protože useň byla produkována nestandardním způsobem. Kůže v té době některé Ruské koželužny činily v březové kůře (standard je dub, buk a podobné). V té době i dnes je to neúsporná metoda, protože činění ve vrbové kůře je znatelně delší a náročnější. Vzor na usni vytvořený válečkem se nevytvářel z důvodu designu, ale proto, aby se lépe březový olej dostal do hloubky usně. Tento celý proces sice trvá a je náročný, ale jak je vidět měl svůj smysl. Britská koželužna J&FJ Baker & Co Ltd s tradicí produkce přes 150 let začala useň s označením Russian Calf produkovat a já jí mám teď pro Vás na svém stole. Je nádherná a naprosto vyjímečně provoněla celou dílnu. Bohužel tento materiál nepatří k nejlevnějším, ale já jej koupit jednoduše musel :-). Useň je plně přírodní, polomatná v barvě koňaku nerovnoměrné barvy. Useň je velice příjemná na dotek a má krásnou vůni. Je měkoučká a zároveň pevná. Skvěle se s ní pracuje a velice špatně fotografuje :-). Jestli se Vám líbí věřte, že realita je znatelně krásnější. #bakerstannery Baker's Tannery Colyton ... See MoreSee Less

I was lucky enough to buy a wallet and credit card holder made with this Russian leather when it was on sale in Truro quite a few years ago and went to visit the workshop when the guy who made them was based in St Eval in Cornwall. Wish I could have afforded the briefcase he’d made! You can smell the sea and salt still!

So interesting. So much expertise and quality.

Hand stitched 🧵 in Mayfair, London. When the upper is thus completed it goes on the last to the maker. The maker adds toe and heel stiffeners and shapes the insole to the bottom of the last, having first soaked the bottom leather to make it mellow. This is moulded to the bottom of the last, and the upper is drawn taut and sewn to the welt. The welt holds the upper to the sole. Tensions have to be even throughout the shoe until the upper fits the wooden last like a glove. The maker then stitches the bottom sole to the welt using a precise number of stitches per inch; the appropriate number of stitches depends on the weight of the leather being used. Between the inner and outer soles, the maker includes a layer of tarry felt to eliminate squeaks in the shoe.

Later the maker adds the heel, which is built up piece by piece with rivets. The bottom of the shoe is then edge-trimmed to provide the finished look. The finish to the bottom of the shoe is very important and demands a high degree of skill. The finish will greatly affect the overall appearance and styling of the shoe. 📷 @steveshawphotos @ G J Cleverley & Co.
