Astell & Kern SE200 Leather case
The SE200 leather case wraps around the entire player providing full protection while enhancing the design and beauty of the player at the same time.
The unique curved part of the SE200 case is made by stretching the leather by hand in order to achieve a perfect fit.
The Buttero Belly leather used in the SE200 case is made from the belly of the cow. This specific type of leather is used due to its thinner qualities which makes it more suitable for curved surfaces. The leather is produced from the finest French raw hides and undergoes a vegetable tanning process that not only creates a dense texture, but a smooth and soft surface. You can feel the premium quality of the leather with every touch.
Established in 1973 in San Miniato, Tuscany, Walpier Tannery has been in business for three generations and has a long tradition of making leather products based on vegetable tanning process. The tannery handles 100% cow hair leathers imported from France and is a member of Vera Pelle, Italy’s association of vegetable-based leather tanners.
The traditional vegetable tanning technology of Walpier Tannery has been handed down father to son for centuries in the Tuscany region. The tanning process usually takes 40 days by putting raw leather with natural tanning extracted from a variety of trees in a drum. This is a processing method only practiced by Italian tanners of the world.
Leather products that undergo the vegetable-based tanning process show the owner’s lifestyle vividly and make the products their own as it takes a long time to break in depending on the owner’s way of handling.
