Maison Takuya uses highest-grade South African Ostrich skins, tanned with a semi- matte finish that will allow a rich patina to develop over time, and darken with use. Each item will therefore get a unique appearance from its owner's lifestyle. We offer two finishes for our Ostrich leathers : the classical studded back finish, for which we prefer to keep the studs half-hammered instead of a totally flat finish, or Ostrich belly skin that is not studded. All our Ostrich skins come with a Certificate of Origin tracing the animal back to its country of birth.
