     The soft, light feel of these skins, that are slightly further developed both in terms of the leather and
     the wool, is preserved in our tannery by means of an ingenious process.
     When describing our lambskin collection, we distinguish between different grades:

                                                                              Andinos: Origin of this quality is Spain

     CHRIST Qualities

    Deer Nappa: Deer Nappa is a rare, exclusively highly valuable leather. The somewhat looser skin
    Structures gives deer nappa its outstanding characteristics that set it apart from other nappa leathers.
    Calf Nappa: Calfskin nappa features a firmer structure with superior hard-wearing properties.
    It is skived and buffed however, to a thickness which offers a high level of wearing comfort.
    Calf Nappa Basic: This is a quality for the true lover of leather. It features the same superior
    properties as calfskin nappa, but the natural grain pattern is intentionally left as it is.
    Lamb Nappa: The lightweight, soft feel and brilliance of the elegant lamb nappa makes this quality
    very attractive.
    Goat Suede: Goats have a very strong skin structure, similar to the genuine wild goat skin.
    The cloth-like, supple feel of kidskin velours makes them a classic skin.
    Goat Capralin: The very finest goatskin velours are treated with Puntata finishing, napping that is
    dotted over the leather, without covering the entire velours surface. The velours remains visible and,
    above all touchable. This CHRIST development is a light , versatile leather with unrivalled wearing

              C3 waterproofing protects against water and dirt and maintains the natural

Product Benfits

              Our tannery has received several awards for its environmentally-friendly tanning and exemplary
              working conditions. Since January 2000, our garments are carrying the inspection seal of the
              Leather Testing and Research Institute in Reutlingen, Germany

              „Produced in an environmentally acceptable way and tested for hazardous substances.“

               We have been pursuing the goal of meeting the entire energy needs of our tannery by using
               renewable energies since 2005. Since April 2007 600,000 eucalyptus trees have ensured 100%
               supply of our tannery’s hot water needs and the combustion-generated CO2 emissions are
               neutralized by the new trees planted. Our tannery thus produces zero CO2 emissions and has
               secured its supply of renewable energies for the next 50 years.
