Collection: Pit Vegetable Full tanned Shrank Horse hide

What is pit tanning?

Pit Tannage (English: Pit Tannage) is not a "drum (a large wooden barrel for tanning the skin) " containing tannins, but a long "pit tank " like a huge bath. It is a method of tanning over time.

Prepare a number of tanks with different concentrations and soak them repeatedly to slowly soak the tannins (plant astringency) into the deep layers of the skin and change it from "skin" to "leather".

To tan a pit, you need experience of a craftsman who makes fine adjustments according to conditions such as humidity and temperature, a long time of about 3 weeks to about 1 month just for tanning , and a large space to prepare a lot of pit tanks. Although it is a laborious and costly method, it is a "leather" that has a superb finish that makes the most of its natural texture, with less strain on the skin by soaking it for a long time.

Features of pit tanning

By slowly soaking in tannins, the leather will be strong and strong.

And as the aging progresses with each use, it becomes supple and the original luster of leather is born.

In addition, because it is tanned using the astringency of plants, it can be said that it is an environmentally friendly leather that returns all harmful substances to the soil.

STRUM pit tanning shrink horsehide

Full tannin pit tanning using only horse leather with a lot of scratches.

After tanning the pit, it is dyed with a drum, and then the drum is turned while applying heat to shrink it to half the normal size (about 2m → 1m), which makes the natural graininess stand out (shrink ).

This process fuses the "scratches" that are the living proof of horse leather with the "textures" that are created by shrinking, creating a rugged and impactful look that is different from product dyeing.

It can be said that the leather has a leather-like finish that makes the most of the natural look of leather.

The "face" of the new STRUM

"Full Tannin Pit Tanning Shrink Horse Hide" has been very popular since the first appearance of 2020-21 A / W.

Since it is not processed by the product, it is a series that has both bone-like masculinity and goods that insist on the unique roughness while preserving the beauty of the rider's line and delicate making.

Also, since it is not shrunk by the product, it is also an advantage that there is no size fluctuation.

This leather, which is produced through many processes for a long time, becomes a leather with a vintage taste, as the tannin tanning gives it a distinctive luster as it ages . It is a leather suitable for the concept of "leather jacket that grows into one outfit".

We hope that STRUM's leather jackets can grow together as a good companion to everyone.
