Olympia is beautiful leather tanned in Italy on the finest selection of Scottish bull hides. Skilled master tanners vacuum dry this leather to impart it with a smooth, consistent grain.
It offers plenty of body, yet is extremely soft and supple for a semi-aniline leather. Averaging 50 square feet, the hides are then carefully trimmed to provide a clean cutting surface throughout.
