Romeroot Material Guide

‘Leather’ is a vast topic, one that Romeroot takes very seriously indeed. In our opinion, you can only produce high-quality shoes by utilizing and fully understanding high-quality materials. Leather comes in an almost unending variety of types, at Romerose we use the finest available, usually European Calf. Regardless of the type of leather, all skins must meet our high expectations during the production process.

Below is a list of leather groups that cover the majority of our shoes & boots found in our collection today.
