Inspired by Earth's Shifting Tectonic Plates
Like the earth’s tectonic plates, that move and evolve over ages, tectonic has a shifting structure that reveals itself over time.
Using a special re-tanning process, the crust of the leather becomes super hard, like the surface of the earth, with an additional resin further tightening its surface. By adding a softening process, the hard crust starts to crack, and form an organic crackled effect.
Despite having a stone polished, crackled surface, TECTONIC maintains its strength and structure and lends itself well to high-end fashion applications, and also softer versions with nubuck.
