Rio waxy pull up sides are a natural, rustic leather which shows the growth lines and organic characteristics of the animal skin. Please note that some of the skins include brand marks. The full grain surface of the leather has been oiled to create a lovely waxy drag feel. Furthermore, the pull-up effect causes the leather to lighten in colour when stretched or pulled creating a distressed or antique finish, allowing for the creation of authentic, rustic looking leathergoods.

This article is especially popular with shoe and boot makers, it is also suitable for satchels, bags and backpacks as well as tablet and phone cases.
