AW18 OLIVVIA LEATHER DEER SKIN SHOES AND BOOTS

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. Continue reading “AW18 OLIVVIA LEATHER DEER SKIN SHOES AND BOOTS”

AW18 Museum Calf Leather Town Shoe Collection for Men

When talking about Tricker’s footwear, most people invariably mention the Bourton heavy brogue country shoe or Stow boot.

However, for many years we have made a selection of Town shoes which are extremely popular with our London Jermyn Street shop customers and discerning gentlemen from across the globe.

What is Museum Calf Leather?

This high-quality leather is distinctive by its beautiful variations in dark and light patterns. Museum Calf is created by hand, when a sponge is used to frame the marble, mottled effect while the hide is still wet. The result gives a soft tanned background with a darker front base. The smooth finish is extremely durable and hard-wearing. As you can imagine, no two pairs look the same, making them extremely unique.

Among some circles, owning a pair of suede shoes or boots gives you an air of sophistication or decadence. In all likelihood, this relates to the added care and attention they require over their leather counterparts.

Obviously, all footwear deserves a good level of maintenance, which the dedicated shoe lover is not shy of bestowing, especially upon their treasured Tricker’s. Continue reading “SS18 Flexi Welt Suede Footwear Collection for Men”

Olivvia Leather – what is it?
