Is there a name for this type of textured (for the lack of a better descriptor) leather...thank you.
I believe that is referred to as pebble grain leather.
That is llama skin. Ask nutcracker about it. They are his shoes.
Two small-ish llama hides, I've just bought on eBay today. With a bit of luck (haven’t seen the leather yet), the brown leather might make a nice pair of shoes/boots and the blue one a summer loafer.
But then, it might not work out and I have to think of something else.
Damn. Very nice. If the brown does not work out for you, I'd be interested.
JB, any ID on the maker? I know Nutcracker's partial to Japanese artisans so my guess would be Fukaya due to the last. Just curious.
The shoes are by Koji Suzuki (Spigola)
Thanks Bengal, I should have figured. The Llama looks incredible.
Llama typically has more veins in the texture that separates it from pebble/scotch grains, it's also apparently incredibly supple stuff.
They just made an ankle boot out of the stuff over in the Epaulet x Carmina MTO thread.
Separate names with a comma.
