Exceptional AK240 Bluenote
In order to raise the bar of the AK240 Bluenote even higher, much
attention was devoted to the selection of leather for the case. Minerva leather,
originated from Badalassi Carlo was chosen for the case. Badalassi Carlo
was made by Professor Carlo Badalassi, who is known for his excellent
skills with leather. Unlike modern methods, he uses a traditional method
of making leather that requires extensive time and devotion. His reputation
is well-known among top expensive brands due to his focus on the
leather quality over quantity.
The leather case for the AK240 Bluenote was made from a process called
“Full Vegetable Tanning”. This traditional method has been used in Italy
for over 200 years. The process brings out the special characteristic of
leather while creating a natural tanning look. A variety of trees and plants
are involved in this tanning process which takes about 40 days to
complete and only the most experienced professionals in Italy possess
the skills to do it.
This special leather material has a lot of oil in it that will allow the leather
to shine the more it is used.
Many tests and trials have been done with
the creation of the leather case in order to highlight the unique design of
the AK240 Bluenote.
