ZONTA, Castorino Suede - Cashew, Fox, Pinna Marone, Bottle Green, Black, French Brown
Castorino Suede is a type of suede leather that is made from high-quality calfskin with a velvet-like nap on one side and an aniline full-grain finish on the other. The term "reverse" suede is used because the suede is made from the flesh side of the leather, rather than the top-grain side. This results in a suede that is incredibly soft and luxurious to the touch, and is often considered to be one of the finest suede materials available.
Castorino Suede is particularly well-known for its quality and is often used by top-end brands and shoemakers to create high-end shoes and boots. The material is also very versatile and can be used to create a wide range of different styles and designs. However, it is particularly well-suited to loafers and boots, where the luxurious texture of the suede can be fully appreciated.
In terms of care and maintenance, Castorino Suede requires regular brushing and protection from moisture and stains to maintain its quality and appearance. With proper care, this type of suede can last for many years and continue to look and feel luxurious.
