Apoa buffalo calf is a semi-aniline leather. It is mineral tanned then fully dip-dyed. Apoa buffalo calf leather is known for its strength and unique natural grain that is emphasized by a natural shrinking procedure. As a semi-aniline leather, it is covered with a thin layer of pigment that makes it impeccably colorfast to light while maintaining its softness. The shrunken buffalo calf skin is exceptionally resistant which makes it suitable for all types of use.
