Vachetta Hide has a buttery soft appearance and can feel amazing when brushed against your skin. It’s around 1mm to 2mm thick and is made from cowhide. It’s untreated, meaning it hasn’t gone through the process as other skins have, leaving it natural, this gains a much darker colour called Patina as sun light get onto the leather and oils and greases from your hands and skin.
