Genuine Ilcea Radica Calfskin (a.k.a. Museum Calf) holds a high seat in the pantheon of shoe leathers. Crafted in Italy, this hide is known for its unique marbling and subtle cloudy appearance. The effect is achieved by a light sponging of the leather immediately after an aniline bath, while the skin is still wet. This allows the color to penetrate the hide, as opposed to remaining on the surface. The final effect has eye-catching depth and remarkable sophistication.
Production of this leather is an intricate and slow process that requires extensive handwork.
