NuBuck Print ( NP)

Shrunken Lamb (SL)
Waxy Cow (CW)
Using only the highest grade of English domestic lambskins, Remy’s English lambskins have a tight fiber structure that results in a full-bodied, supple skin. The drape and hand are uniform and the colors rich, as a result of the full aniline finish. Growthy areas that are normally found in lambskins are less evident in these English domestic lambskins.
This English domestic lambskin, tanned in Italy, is finished on the suede side of the skin. The base skin is double-dyed, with a darker second dye applied over the lighter colored base layer; and then the skin is hand buffed to achieve the unique distressed appearance. It is normal for garments produced in this skin to have an individual patina.
Remy Lite (RL)
Remy Lite is the lightest weight leather used for the manufacture of leather garments. Made of English domestic lambskins, Remy Lite is a suede product with a light resin finish. In time, as the resin wears down, the nap of the suede will buff up; however, the color and visual character of the skin will not change. The fine hand and luster of the Remy Lite skin is the ultimate handwork of the tanner’s skills.
This nubuck product is made on English Domestic lambskins. As you know by now, nubuck means that the skins is finished on the grain side with the top layer being buffed (removed) revealing a nap. The tannage then provides for an oil product which gives the skins a draggy hand feel. As different from other nubuck articles, Ranger does not show a great deal of grain, it is almost uniformly napped.
Pebble Nubuck (PN)
A superior nubuck with a pebbled/grain effect, tanned in Italy, these calf skins reflect the best that the tanners have to offer. Unlike suede, which is finished on the flesh side of the skin, these calf skins are buffed on the grain side creating a nap while leaving many of the grain side characteristics visible (i.e. vein shadows, markings and blemishes).
Using North African skins, this product is double dyed and drum finished (not sprayed). The first dye layer is lighter in color than the second top layer. As the bottom layer “breaks” through the top layer you get a slight “distressed” look. There is a slight oiled finish on the surface of this skin and thus you have a “waxy” feel.
Remy Vintage (RV)
English Domestic Lambskin finished on the flesh (suede) side, with a resin finish that is then rubbed off to give it a varied appeal. RV is the perfect skin to give a distressed look while providing the wearer with an extremely light weight garment.
