Hello chogall, we have restarted to supply some important shoemakers. Maybe I could write you in PM the names, sometimes our customers don't appreciate if we reveal their sources of supply. I will post some pictures of current batches of Museum Calf as soon
 Incidentally only the good looking museum calf is the real Ilcea, the other are imitations from different tanneries...
Wonderful!!! This shows that Museum Calf has many possible uses.Sorry cgo who is the manufacturer of this wallet?
Hi joiji, I am part of the new Ilcea ownership. I don't know every detail about the past Ilcea management, but is very probable that in the last months of the old ownership Ilcea send lower quality hides at some customers.As you probably know a fundamental thing in the management of a tannery is the right raw material management, to produce high quality finished leathers you must buy the best raw material, then you have to make the right selections for the right articles...
Betis Radica is a variation upon Betis, that is the "trademark" product of Ilcea, this is a natural calf that can be worked with waxes or anilines during the construction of the shoes, in this case we make the radica effect on the Betis base.Instead Radica is more like a box calf leather, it's aniline dyed and so it has the glazed effect typical of box.
This color is now called Rust by our tannery, but various shoemakers use different name for this.
Hi, we're reorganizing the distribution of Ilcea and at the moment we haven't got a representative in the US. But we're going to have one soon.I have written to you in private message for more information.
Hello, I speak for the new property of Ilcea, from january 2014. These are some photos of the real radica calf (museum for John Lobb) from the real Ilcea Tannery (now in production):     The other products from different tanneries are only surrogates of the original Radica.
Hi MSchapiro, soon will be available pictures of the Radica offerings in the new website (we are projecting also something for the member of forums like SF or blogs). For the moment I could give you these small anticipations (from our Lineapelle stand):
I'm not a sale agent of Ilcea. I'm a member of the new ownership of Ilcea.I wrote to you in private messagge
