The popularity of suede straps over the last few years has been driven by the tactile nature of the leather and some of the beautiful colours available. However, suede is notoriously fragile and deteriorates pretty quickly over time. At Molequin they had no doubt that they needed to source leather that had similar qualities to suede but would be far more resilient and they found it in Taurillon Nubuck. It’s a leather that is created from the very best part of the hide, the top grain. It’s then sanded to create a short nap that has a plush velvety feel. The guys from Molequin worked very closely with a world class tannery to create a collection inspired by the fabulous colours of nature, in particular Autumn.
