Tropical Splash hides are a mix of hair-on cowhide and finished leather that have been dipped to create an acid-washed effect. Each hide has a unique pattern and colours range from traditional to flashy metallics. The average size of the cow skins is circa 5 m2. The leather is dyed with mineral colours and not submitted to finishing. This means that colours are not fixed. Tropical Splash is an article produced by hand working. It is a completely natural material, and therefore every skin is different from the other. Also, different nuances of colour are evident from one skin to the other and throughout the same skin. Because the colour of the print can be transferred all over the hide, the hides should not be folded.
