Cascia (CA)

Cascia is named for a town in the mountainous southeastern corner of Umbria. Unique to naked leathers, it has a very consistent color and a supple, velvet hand. The premium select material originates from Scandinavia and its clarity reveals all the natural characteristics of premium full grain leather. A blend of the finest quality aniline dyes provides excellent lightfastness properties for a naked leather.
