Italian Vachetta leather
The traditional style leather characterised by its smooth surface and natural finish. Italian heritage.
Just outside of Naples, every Carl Friedrik product is handmade by a small team of artisans - masters of their craft.
A continous thread throughout, keeping your wallet strong and unyielding to the demands of modern life.
Vachetta is natural leather which retains the orginal surface structure. The result is one of the most beautiful and durable kinds of leather. However, areas with naturally occuring marks are undesirable on finished products so they are often discarded.
In the production of Chester we exclusively use off-cut leather panels which would have been otherwise discarded.
