For Ikon our tanning team set out to produce a whole new category of metallic leathers, A category that could represent a meanginful alternative to conventional foil-veneers. Where foil lamination can brilliantly reproduce smooth consistent surface lustre, creating a more broken-in, soaked-in and truly imbued metallic aspect required a different approach.
The result is a reassuringly spongey and full-bodied mill-tumbled steer hide distinguished by deep and textured glint effects. Liquidized metallic formula permeates throughout the leathers substance, both on the surface and within the grain-patterns, producing an ancient feeling luminescence reminiscent of antique Russian icon artworks. The leather offers softness in both optic as well as handle in a distinctive finish that becomes richer over time.
