This is a semi-gloss laminated leather of slightly variable appearance and it is derived from full grain bovine leather (thickness mm. 1.0/1.2). Unlike classic gloss laminates which are produced by completely removing the outer layer of hide, the grain of Crystal remains partly visible.
The gentle milling to which Crystal is subjected to gives it a suppler smoother feel than normal mirror finishes and makes it easier to work on. Crystal is a valid alternative to the classic, laminated, crossbred sheepskins napa for customers seeking a larger cutting area and greater strength and thickness.
