The inspiration for Castello Davarg came from simple leather belt. One of our founders, had a leather belt made with original cowhide from very famous San Fransisco based denim company. This belt was used for few decades, and as can be seen here. The grain, the pull-up and the wear marks this belt held up good with daily wear. When he wanted a new belt just like his trusted old belt, he was not satisfied with what was in the market. So he took upon himself to make a belt out of natural leather and started the quest to learn more about leather and traditional leather crafting techniques.What started as a curiosity turned into a passion for leather and crafting techniques- with every detail on DaVarg Leather carefully considered and perfected over years. The 5 leather shades, hand-stitching, back coating and edge finishing were developed specifically and tested to ensure that they will last forever. Soon Castello DaVarg & Co was born with the assistance of few friends and family.
The epidermal top layer in full-grain leather retains the character of the natural hide. Vegetable tanning preserves this layer and the grain continues to mature and develop further character with age.
The leather grain has a natural shine that reflects and refracts light even when they are tinted deep with a shade. Leather sheen improves as grains surface gets waxed and polished. Opaque leather lacks sheen.
Patina is the natural unevenness in shades that gets pronounced as grain layer is stretched and as leather absorbs moisture and oils. Patina develops with age, giving the leather a well-worn vintage appearance.
