Looks like Estonian tannery TripleSkin begins to sell a replica next October, not just embossed finish.Very small calfskin (5.4 sq.ft.) if a whole skin.Same announcement by Estonian bespoke shoemaker Kriuks.https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=et&tl=en&u=http://www.kriuks.com/et/kriuks-news/mis-yufte-ja-mis-ta-meist-motleb-4137/Does anyone happen to have read a detailed identification of the Metta Catharina leather as reindeer hide by British Leather...
Oh, I'm sorry, they may be hand-sewn welted + norvegese.The cobbler explains two rows of inseams with the following picture.

That’s great news. What do you mean, "two-way suede" or "two-way effect"? http://www.english.ilceaconceria.it/Camosci.htm http://www.english.ilceaconceria.it/Vendome.htm Do you have any specific reason for discontinuing horsehide?
Tasman acquired Prime Tanning Co. while they were originally a rawhide company. Not sure but their leather is tanned in the US.http://www.pressherald.com/news/prime-tanning-files-for-bankruptcy_2010-11-16.html?pagenum=fullhttp://www.pressherald.com/news/Cowhide-Hartland-giant-eyes-tannery.htmlhttp://web.archive.org/web/20111120075256/http://www.primetanning.com/clients.html

Here are a staking machine and its mechanism. Hardened leather after drying is sandwiched between vibrating stakes to soften the fibers of the leather.Boarding by hand or machine is another method to soften leather. Besides softening, it develops grain patterns — willow grain, box grain, and pebbled grain. Box grain is considered as one of the origin of box calf.Here are other explanations of its origin from Handmade Shoes for Men.These are current definitions.
