One of the newest leathers in the market place, Tricker’s is honoured to be the only shoemaker in the world using Olivvia leather.
What is Olivvia Leather?
Developed in partnership with German tannery Weinheimer, Olivvia leather uses an all-natural tanning procedure. In this process, an essence from olive leaves is used for tanning. The olive leaves provide a completely chrome-free tanning alternative and are a bi-product of the olive industry, diverted from being burnt as a waste product, thereby avoiding the environmental impact of that process. This chemical-free leather combines the natural smell of leather with the warm undertone of olives.
For AW18, we have developed this range further by using Deer Skin uppers and sheep skin linings to produce a one hundred per cent natural veg tanned upper.
Although Deer Skin is extremely soft, do not underestimate this leather. Known in the trade as the third strongest leather around, Deer Skin is incredibly durable and will last a very long time with proper maintenance.
