Recently we visited SEARS in Bassano del Grappa in Veneto, Northern Italy. The store is a nice example of a well curated selection of products, beautiful decoration, atmosphere, lighting and dedication to details. Well done, Mario.
For 2014 Croots will introduce a small range of bags and leathergoods made in Horween’s iconic Chromexcel leather.
Chromexcel is the original pull-up leather; using time honored techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago. Chromexcel is still produced in the United States using a bark retannage from a proprietary recipe, and then genuine hot stuffed with our secret blend of natural oils and greases.
Chromexcel is characterized by a rich pull-up in full aniline, hand rubbed finishes. Made to this day with old world craftsmanship, modern Chromexcel carries on a long history of superior comfort and durability.
The range includes a duffle bag in the right size for your weekend travels or the visit to the gym, a Tote bag as your ideal everyday carry companion or shopping aid, a shoulder bag and a small range of handy and practical smaller items such as an Ipad and Ipad mini case, an Iphone case, a sunglass case, a credit card or business card holder, luggage tag and a key chain. Come and see these items first at PITTI, Florence, January 7th – 10th 2014, booth 7, PADIGLIONE CENTRALE – SALONE M P.INFERIORE. Or visit Bread&Butter, Berlin, January 14th- 16th, Fire Dept., stall FD14.
