Chelsea Natural Kangaroo

Written by Guy Ferguson
Chelsea Natural Kangaroo

When we originally sourced this Washed Natural Kangaroo hide from Italy it was for a project that involved overdyeing a run of finished boots.  After testing several leather options we found that the Kangaroo was able to best absorb the natural dyes we were using.  This information is relevant to this release because it means that this leather, in it's untreated state will patina and evolve faster than nearly any material we have used in the past.  The vegetable-tanned Kangaroo is naturally absorbent and the washing process removes any finish that would otherwise preserve the colour of the leather.  Our wholecut Chelsea pattern serves as the perfect canvas for this evolution.  Purchase the Chelsea Natural Kangaroo here.
