PISTOLESI was established in the year of 1989 Toscana region and is a tannery oriented with the finest top-quality leather.
Carefully selecting only the finest hides throughout Italy, France and Spain, they create the best quality of leather through very difficult and rigid technique such as TIE & DYE, SRIGRAFIA.
NOIR LARMES shearing jackets only use leathers from Italy that is tanned by PISTOLESI and mouton raw skin material from Spain, which the best country with best condition of raw skin.
NAPP REFINSH leather, which is commonly used for shearling(mouton) leather the surface is treated with suede, followed by SPRUZZO treatment, and is equally finished with a special process machine in just simple two-steps.
On the other hand, MICROCRACK process used in NOIRLARMES would be finished with 4 more steps to the following procedure (total of 6 steps).
After the suede treatment, the product goes through base SPRUZZO processed with a lighter color of 1-2 degrees from the standard color, and after a fixation step at a certain temperature, it would go in through an additional SPRUZZO with standard color one more time.
Afterwards, through the special vacuum drum VUOTO LAVATRICE process, the spruzzo-treated pigments on the surface are intentionally evaporated in a vacuum state according to the shape of the product.
Lastly, on the 6th procedure, dust or such substances generated throughout the procedure of evaporation are removed from the surface, and a binding operation is performed to maintain the touch and water repellency of the surface which would be the final touch of the article.
In summary, it is an article in which by adding the 4 additional steps of process, expression of the rough texture on the soft NAPPA leather increased and is a much more three-dimensional and compact compared to general NAPPA type leathers.
It is much more luxurious and expensive processing method as a total of 6 steps are involved, and NOIR LARMES is presenting a SEMI-MICROCRACK article in collaboration with PISTOLESI.
