This is a beautiful shearling jacket crafted by hand with leather details. Many people ask me what shearling is and want to know what kind of skins are used. When we first started using the shearling back in the 1970’ s it was than known also as “montone rovesciato” or inverted sheepskin.
Shearling is a skin from a recently shorn sheep or lamb that has been tanned and dressed with the wool left on. It has a suede surface on one side and a clipped fur surface on the other. Usually the suede side is worn outward.
Since than many things has changed and now we have reached a very high level of quality which means much lighter jackets than the old shearlings. Which were a lot more heavier and harder than the new generation of materials offered by the ongoing technology in the Italian tannery.
Now we’re able to craft these beautiful and tailored.
