I had been hunting for a tannery for years now who could duplicate our extremely successful SuperMatte finish in Ostrich Leg skin and we have finally struck gold! This new Italian based tannery specializes in Ostrich Leg and Python leather and is capable of extremely fine finishes as you can see by the attached photos. When we approached them at Lineapelle Leather tradeshow in Milan a couple of years ago, about making some Ostrich Leg in a SuperMatte finish, they assured us that they could produce them for us in any color we desired and in virtually (for us) unlimited quantities. Having received these results, I am absolutely blown away!! These hides are bespoke tanned to our specifications, so these are finishes that are exclusive to Dangerous9straps and therefore exclusive to our customers!
Due to the nature of the SuperMatte finish, the skins used must be essentially flawless, as any imperfection or flaw in the surface of the leather will be amplified when finished in SuperMatte. As a result, these Ostrich Leg skins are quite an expensive proposition. We, however, think that our customers will find that extra expense worth it.
Below are some examples of straps which I have made from our SuperMatte Carbon Black Ostrich Leg Skins:
