Like the Bookcalf, the Faircalf originates mainly from New Zealand and Scandinavia. The skins are dried on our 'glass' drying machine to enhance the natural smoothness and beauty associated with this quality of leather. The surface is absorbent and lends itself well to additional dyeing by the user.
You can see an example of our Faircalf on the following finished books:
The Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, Ce qui aurait pu demeurer silence,
An Orchestra of Minorities,
The Sea Fogs and
The Tragedy of Othello the Moor of Venice, that are featured in the Showcase area of our web site.
