New York, NY (PressExposure) November 23, 2009 -- For men with distinguished taste, Trafalgar Leather Companyâs Cortina leather offers the highest quality belts and wallets by using techniques often overlooked in the leather accessories business. Unlike poorly stained leather, where only the top layer of the leather will wear with age, all of Trafalgarâs Cortina leather products will maintain the rich highlighting of natural grain, for a lifetime. One great example of Cortina Leather is the Trafalgar Cortina Leather Belt, now offered for only $60 at http://www.TrafalgarStore.com.
Cortina leather comes specifically from the shoulder area of the hide; it is the one place the contrasting highs & lows of the natural hide show the most depth and richness of color. Trafalgar Cortina hides come from free-roaming cows within the Belgium countryside where barbwire is never used. This precaution eliminates the inevitable scarring of the hides which is found in most other inferior leathers. The rich soft leather is particularly noticeable on fine wallets and billfolds such as the Cortina Calf-skin tri-fold.
The Cortina tanning process is drum dyed, and aniline finished, which means the leather is submersed into the vegetable dye for up to 2 months. This process ensures the color fully penetrates the leather, resulting in a beautiful finish that shows the contrasting highs & lows of the natural grain. Trafalgar lines all Cortina products with Grade A vegetable tanned leather allowing the natural color of the hide to come through, and assuring a finish that will burnish with age and result in a beautiful patina.
