Here’s the Blackacre wallet from the previous post in various shades of natural light, after a little rubbing of home made conditioner.
The CXL horse is a real beauty:
The leather shines intensely in the sunlight, and the varying tone in different lighting makes the true colour difficult to capture.
Well, I guess there is no true colour to speak of…like natural indigo dye, it all depends on the light.
It has to be held and seen by the eye to be fully appreciated, such is the shifting nature of re-tanned leathers from Horween.
The CXL horse can have a darker blood-red tone in indoor lighting, whilst appearing to be on fire in direct Australian sunlight!
Really liking the contrast red stitching with the black inner.
The inner matte leather also creates an interesting juxtaposition with the shiny out-shell…I’ll explain this a little more in the next post.
A big thanks to Ray & the rest of the crew at Blackacre for this wonderful piece of craft !
