Chevre leather from Alran tannery is most often used in small leather goods. The beauty of Alran Chevre is in the texture and grain. It has a slight pebbled texture that is very smooth to the touch, making any product immediately look luxurious. Compared to Epsom, the pebbled surface on Chevre is formed naturally from the raw goat leather and the tanning process, and not embossed on. It also has finer pebbled grain patterns compared to Epsom, and is slightly shiny. Similar to Epsom, Chevre also has very strong water and scratch-resistant properties.
Excerpt from Strap Guide by Dany: "Chevre straps are not very common. Produced in the south of France, this goatskin leather has a smooth surface and slight gloss. It feels natural, raw and unique. That’s not all, chevre straps are highly water and scratch resistant. The Colibri light blue color is very refreshing and ideal for casual attire."
