Inventor of the secret of aged leather, a revolutionary technique that brought it to fame, Chevignon owes this privileged position to its unique leather know-how. The brand combines the art and method of working, cutting and treating leather with one single and unique aim: making utility beautiful and ensuring that style and technical perfection remain inseparable.
This is a very fine, soft leather, often considered the most beautiful. It is used to create more elegant clothing, which hugs the contours of the body. It is ideal for a perfecto-style jacket cut.
This is a very soft leather, but more resistant than lambskin. Being rougher, it is often used to create accessories (shoes, wallets, bags). The use of this material enables them to last over time.
This is a thick, resistant leather, which can be used for both elegant jackets and warm jackets, by retaining the wool. It is therefore the perfect leather for winter temperatures.
Cowhide leather is less fine, but its appearance is smooth, soft and resistant. It is therefore more solid and more rigid than calfskin. It is perfect for producing jackets designed to last and improve with age.
This is a very fibrous and nervous leather. It combines robustness and softness. No other leather can support as much movement without cracking at the creases. It is ideal for producing jackets that are comfortable from the moment you buy them and that are designed to last over time.
The fit, the hang and the comfort of a Chevignon leather is learnt, is touched, is worn, and develops a patina in order to become a true second skin.
If the modern man takes care of his skin, the same should be true of the way in which he cares for his leather or his clothes.
Leather, a living material, continues to evolve after its manufacturing: scratches, scrapes, colour variations... all these particularities are linked to your life and that of your jacket, and over the years they only serve to highlight its originality.
Being delicate leathers, we recommend protecting them with a water repellent aerosol spray. The spray should be used 40cm from the leather to avoid stains.
to prevent the leather from drying out, it is important to rub a soft cloth soaked in colourless or coloured lotion depending on the nature of your jacket, in small quantities, and gently massage the leather. (Do not apply the lotion directly to the leather). Before shining with a dry cloth, make sure to leave the applied product to dry.
Velvety skins are delicate leathers whose surfaces have undergone treatment which requires special care.
In the event of doubt, heavy soiling or large stains, we recommend bringing your leather to a specialist, bearing in mind that it is recommended to act as quickly as possible as time accentuates penetration and gradually eliminates the possibility of resorption.
