Alder products are made using ethically sourced cowhide.
To ensure a superb look, hand feel and softness, no alteration to the surface of the hide is made. There is no grain surface treatment. The skin has a natural full grain drum dyed aniline finish, where the grain has little protection.

Minor imperfections may, at times, be visible on the skin, but all add to the beauty and uniqueness of the product.
