Luxury pleasures by Fornicouture. Fuji Glass & Leather Diletto from the Volcanic Series of Fornicouture, design by AHH.

The objects of the Volcanic Series are named after the biggest vulcanoes in the world. Their shapes and features are inspired by the stories and mythology of these vulcanoes.

Concept:
The Japanese Kanji for volcanic Mount Fuji, dormant since February 1708, translates as ‘abundant’ or ‘man with a certain status’. Once declared by an Edo era scholar as ‘a mountain standing up shapely as an ear of a rice plant’.

Composition:
Curved translucent blown glass diletto, with aeration detail and line detail. The kangaroo hyde handle is expertly plaited by the Queen of England’s whipmaker. The handle features an 18 strand plait with pommell end and an engraved sterling silver signatory. Leather plaiting is a craft which requires great expertize and does not lend itself to mass production. The leather used is kangaroo hyde, which makes the finest plaiting material. When the hyde is properly prepared it is several times stronger than cowhide. Its particularly dense structure gives clean edges to the strands, natural resistance to water penetration and stretch. The raw leather has been ‘whip tanned’ using euchalyptus or wattle bark. The leather has been through the process of being drum stuffed; heated and tumbled with grease immediately after it has come from the tanning process. The immediacy of the drum stuffing means that the pores of the leather are still open which optimizes penetration of the grease. The leather has been dried naturally and cut by hand into strands from the centre part of the hyde. The centre of the hyde has the most uniform density and is therefore the best quality part. The strands are then hand greased and rubbed to get all of the stretch out of the leather, plus heat generated by the friction of the hand rubbing puts further moisture into the leather. Once plaited it is given a final coating of shellac. The leather is from a sustainable source and complies with import regulations. 100% Made in England.

Note: Comes in plane wooden box with AHH logo.
Care: The fine structure of kangaroo hyde is dense and not sponge like as some other leathers so there is less opportunity to absorb moisture from wetting. Wash with soapy water and a cloth and dry naturally. Do not immerse in water. Specialist leather soaps are available.
Each individual design is by method of production truly unique in style, interpretation and finish, as each piece is completely man-made imperfections are part of the design. Colors and patterns may differ from photo.
