Ends Cuoio products quality is the outcome of the enthusiasm that drives our ideas and work. Enthusiasm that leeds us to put in the extra effort necessary to deliver a product of absolute excellence to our fellow bikers.
We only choose the best materials: we use 4mm thick vegetable tanned leather to handcraft our Harley-Davidson products, and milled vegetable tanned leather for our Triumph products. Leather is sewed with 1mm thick sewing thread and – depending on the saddlebag model – we use polyethylene, aluminum plaques, or an iron structure to make our products trong enough to withstand even the heaviest loads. Our saddlebags, seats and grips are made to withstand any weather condition, therefore every metal part (buckles, rivets etc) is made of nickel plated brass, which does not ossidate and it’s made to last in time; quick buckles, instead, are made in stainless steal and come from nautical applications. Our seats are composed by an iron base, topped with high density foam, gel and memory foam; we are the only company on the market which fully covers in leather the base of its seats.
Vegetable tanned leather
Vegetable tanned leather – differently from chrome tanned leather and synthetic leather – is characterized by the presence of wrinkles, scars and veins, which represent the heritage passed on by the animal. Its texture gets even more particular and unique with time. This kind of leather, in fact, changes in color and rigidity depending on how it is taken care of; this allows our products to gain – over the years – a great value, proudly “wearing” the marks left by the miles. “Vegetable tanned leather absorbs the traces of our life, it matures, it changes color under the sun; reveals the signs of time and makes them the most personal expression of naturalness and truth.” [Vegetable Tanned LeatherTuscan Consortium].
A peculiarity of vegetable-tanned leather is its natural ageing; quality that allows our products to testimony – through the change of their color and essence – their naturalness and genuineness. Therefore our saddlebags and seats mutate depending on how the owner treats and lives them, making them the most personal accessory on his bike.
Our motorcycle saddlebags and seats are sewed with 1mm thick sewing thread, and present a back reinforced with iron, aluminum or polyethylene depending on the model. Our producs are meant to be used under any weather condition so, along with nickel-plated brass parts, every saddel bag has leather tabs to prevent water infiltration.
Every saddlebag, seat and grip can be personalized with drawings and phrases. Is also possible to modify saddlebags depth in order to make them more, or less roomy. Every Harley-Davidson large saddlebag can can be hand-crafted with a long or a short flap. Our seats can have gel and memory foam, or the more traditional high-density foam.
Our Harley-Davidson and Triumph products can be handcrafted in different colors*.
*Please remind that all our products are handcrafted: the hand coloring process, and the uniqueness of vegetable tanned leather play a key role in the making of a unique product that is always different. Especially two tone and distressed products, due to their elaborate production process, never look alike.
