We use full grain cowhide in our products.
Cowhide as a category covers a wide spectrum of textures and quality, but generally, it is quite durable, easy to care for and resistant to water and dirt. Cowhide leather will maintain its integrity, taking on the shape of the wearer, making it more comfortable with everyday use. This affordable, functional leather offers fashion, value and endless colors and style.
Full grain cowhide is cleaner than other leather type, that’s why we choose full grain cowhide to produce Beyzacases.
The softness, color and shine are the results of skillful processing.
The leather starts out with a process that gives our leather products that wonderful feel that we have become famous for.
At the raw point, the skin is drum dyed in the fashionable colors. The term drum-dyed means; that the dye colors permeate completely through the skins. This saturation process is done over a thirty-day period as the skins tumble in huge wooden drums, similar to a concrete truck drum. Although drum dyeing is the best and most expensive process to dye skins, it is natural for all leather colors to fade, especially in the sunlight.
We use the finest raw material for our premium items which show top fashion.
In order to create a full grain cowhide which exhibits the characteristics with respect to grain and water vapor permeability that are required by the case industry, a finish is applied to the grain side of the full grain leather. The finish includes a pigmented layer with a thickness and is formed of a stabilized polyurethane and/or polyacrylate dispersion. The dispersion contains micro spheres, which form primarily closed cells, and at least 10% open cells by volume.
A second layer, placed on the first layer, is formed from a cross-linked polyurethane-based varnish application containing a dulling agent. The leather undergoes a milling treatment.
The properties of leather vary considerably depending upon the type and quality of both the skins and the tanning process. Every piece of leather has individual markings which relate to its origins and add character to each skin.
Individually crafted by skilled artisans in the traditional methods of fine leather making, Beyzacases leather cases exemplify the fine art of hand-tooled luxury leatherwork.
Our cases are high-end products aimed owners of portable electronic devices. The styling will appeal to many types of individuals: businessman, teenage, sports people, or anyone with an appreciation for fine craftsmanship.
The leather manufacturing process is divided into three fundamental sub-processes: preparatory stages, tanning and crusting. All true leathers will undergo these sub-processes. A further sub-process, surface coating is also added into the leather process sequence as a surface treatment.
The preparatory stages are when the hide/skin is prepared for tanning. Preparatory stages include: preservation, soaking, liming, unhairing, fleshing, splitting, reliming, deliming, bating, degreasing, frizing, bleaching, pickling and depickling.
Tanning is the process which converts the protein of the raw hide or skin into a stable material which will not putrefy and is suitable for a wide variety of end applications.
Crusting is when the hide/skin is thinned, retanned and lubricated. Also, a coloring operation is included in the crusting sub-process. The chemicals added during crusting have to be fixed in place. The culmination of the crusting sub-process is the drying and softening operations. Crusting include the following operations: wetting back, sammying, splitting, shaving, rechroming, neutralization, retanning, dyeing, fat liquoring, filling, stuffing, stripping, whitening, fixating, setting, drying, conditioning, milling, staking, and buffing.
For some of our leathers a surface coating is applied. Tanners refer to this as finishing. Finishing operations include: oiling, brushing, padding, impregnation, buffing, spraying, roller coating, curtain coating, polishing, plating, embossing, ironing, ironing/combing (for hair-on), glazing and tumbling.
The final phase include, implementing the design, stitching and the quality controls. Also, accessories and the supplementary elements added to the design in the implementing design phase.
