Missouri leather from Conceria La Perla Azzurra is a beautiful leather from one of our favorite Italian Tanneries.
This leather has quite a few character markings throughout from lighter to darker striations. It has a pull-up effect (lightening of the leather when bent) that is wonderful and adds just one more interesting aspect to it. Finished pieces are quite striking.
It has a slight glossy glaze finish to it and a stiffness to it that is appreciated. Like all leather, it will break in over time with carry and use. It does well with general water resistance due to the amount of fats and oils it is stuffed with, and will hold up well in that aspect when compared with an unglazed option.
