It's not that. Discharge dye is a pretty harsh treatment. You are actually leaching dye from the leather, and it's not kind to materials. I just wanted to know the extent of the damage, and how I might treat it post dyeing process.

I'm going to post this for @Zamb, mainly because he is probably the only person who might know the answer, but please, if anyone else has tried this and knows the answer, please tell me.
I'm been thinking of using a discharge dye on leather. I think that it could be a cool effect, and I could also play with graphics and color blocking. The leather is not drum dyed, so I'm fairly confident that the color will leach. However, I'm concerned that the treatment might leave the leather brittle and dry. Also, I have to do all this post manufacture, for logistical reasons.
Yes you can use a discharge dye on leather,
discharge dyes are usually the same chemical structure as the ones used for cold process dyeing. the treatment will require treating leather with vinegar to neutralize the effects of the dye on the leather and then lots of leather conditioner. better to use a conditioner that is more of an oil than a cream, this way the conditioner will penetrate the structure/ pores of the leather and restore the moisture.
Avoid anything that has Alcohol in it, as this is the biggest destructive force in drying out the moisture of the leather and causing it to crack.post #9424 of 1578112/15/13 at 1:54pmQuote:Originally Posted by Zamb

I partially understood your writing, is your response written in artisanal grammar? If so that is why I do not understand all of it.
Okay all jokes aside, I hope you realize that my response pages back was not directed towards disliking you or your product, I don’t even understand how you misinterpreted it that way. Also your written paragraphs and angry words directed to me were irrelevant, completely unnecessary, and slightly childish especially for someone that owns a clothing company.
Would love for you to be a regular poster on here, and share some info and thoughts with all of us.post #9425 of 1578112/15/13 at 1:55pmFInally got to try on this burgundy Balmain biker, it's a great jacket but it is way more padded than picture have you believed. The sleeves almost seems like it is downfilled. Fits real small too, they only had a 50 in-store and it fits me about right and that is coming from someone who wears a 44 in a 5-zip.
And speaking of 5zips, they have new one that looked grey and are pretty thick, which is surprising considering it is probably for the SS14 season. Not sure what kind of leather it is though, it had some texture.
Also exchanged my 5zip for this instead. People hate the buttons but I really don't mind it at all, it's more of a leather shirt design I guess.post #9426 of 1578112/15/13 at 2:07pmpost #9427 of 1578112/15/13 at 2:30pmpost #9428 of 1578112/15/13 at 2:51pmpost #9429 of 1578112/15/13 at 2:59pmpost #9430 of 1578112/15/13 at 3:06pmHaving owned and tried on numerous leathers, the 5-zip is not even close to overrated. The fit is phenomenal, the leathers can be great (depending on season and origin) and its a classic silhouette. I also prefer leather jackets without ribbing because they show age less, and the design is very minimal with large pieces of hide being used. Not to mention the price, which tends to hit 30% off most seasons making it relatively accessible for a "baller" leather jacket. That rick leather shirt/jacket is a bad trade in imo, you have to cuff the sleeves up just for it to be normal.post #9431 of 1578112/15/13 at 3:09pmpost #9432 of 1578112/15/13 at 3:17pmQuote:
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's Ann D. While I agree with the comment regarding the cuffs (I don't believe those are the standard buttoned cuffs on the jacket), I think the jacket itself is very nice. I mean after all, when it comes to design, it's all subjective anyways.
EDIT: Do I think the trade was worth it? Personally, no. But if the jacket was more suited towards what you wear, then by all means, the trade was fine. That's what I meant when I said design's all subjective.post #9433 of 1578112/15/13 at 3:20pm
Of course there not all the same, thats what makes more rare of a grail cop. Everybody interested I'm sure has there preferred season of which leather or color they like the most.
Ill have to agree with @Fycus that the trade of a 5-zip for a leather shirt was dumb. I could only see buying a leather shirt like that if it had high percentage mark down or if you have the money and already own a leather jacket. It dosent seem that nice, or something that can be worn enough to justify a high price.post #9434 of 1578112/15/13 at 3:26pmpost #9435 of 1578112/15/13 at 3:30pm
