TEA CORE SEMI ANILINE HORSEHIDE
Tea core horsehide mainly refers to the process of only dyeing the surface of horsehide but not penetrating to the tea-colored core. Even though tea core leather is now widely used, Double Helix's tea core horsehide still retains a special presence owing to years of experience and technology. Because we only dye the surface of horsehide black, it can be hard to achieve a truly ‘black’ black, and the leather can have a kind of grayish tint to it if it’s not dyed properly.
The current operator of the tannery that Double Helix cooperates with has been in the business for 50 years, and their team has a rich and deep history of experience in the relationship between the tanning and dyeing processes. In order to dye in a true, pure black, Double Helix specially commissioned an order where a special horsehide was made, and after repeated trials of dyeing tests, the black tea core horsehide of Double Helix was produced.(Thickness:1.3mm-1.5mm)
