How to clean leather your leather without damaging

How to clean leather your leather without damaging

Known to be linked with the protein skin, the disintegration of melanin during the manufacturing process can be achieved by oxidizing and reducing agents. Also, there is the use of suitable enzymes to accomplish this degradation process.

Using Xylanase

Given the type of matter present in the melanin layers like the glycans components, the removal can be also be made possible as a result of the action of a substance called Xylanase.

This xylanase substance is classified as catalytic due to its activity and nature, which is being owed to its double-placement mechanism. The material hydrolyzes the xylose, which is the source of Xylanase.

During the opening of the fiber for Melanin removal, it is discovered that there is a presence of amylase which assist the Xylanase during production and serves as a similar mechanism. Both mechanisms must work together to separate the protein and carbohydrate linkages while catalyzing the hydrolysis linkages of glycans.

However, these removal processes mostly result in poor condition of the surface, and expert knowledge is imperative in assuring a tidy and excellent production process. Due to the environmental Pollution and hazard that leather making can impose, ecological regulation has insisted that leather industries must adopt cleaner, safer, and greener means.

Computer Hypothesis

Also, adopting computer hypothesis and approach, other enzymes for the pre-tanning process are being taken into consideration, and these processes reach a success rate of 0.5% for total melanin removal. The fiber opening sequence reads at 0.3%.

Hardiston stores adopt only the best quality of leather for every product available to ensure the much-needed quality in all products.

The difference between Airpod PRO and other Bluetooth earphones?

The difference between Airpod PRO and other Bluetooth earphones?

The technological achievement of Apple products has been nothing but staggering over the years. With the announcement of the iPhone 7, Apple released the amazing Airpod device with a brand new idea for audio jacks.

Reviewing the new Apple Airpods, there are so many things to discover in the latest technology. It has indeed forever changed the concept of headphones into a new dimension. Here is the list of all the significant sensors present in the device;

  • Dual optical sensors
  • Motion-detection accelerometer
  • Speech-detection accelerometer
  • Dual beam-forming microphone

As you pull out the tools from the case, you are automatically connected to the audio feature of your Apple devices such as Mac iPhones, iPad, and Apple Watch. The sound sequence also pauses when you take them off your ears. It doesn't stop there. You can also access song skipping, volumes, calls, and directions by just double-tapping to activate the Siri feature for help.

This happens as a result of the astute Apple W1 embedded into the device, which allows for optical and motion sensors. With the accelerometer, your ears can detect your ears and make the designated functions without you doing much.

Another action the Apple W1 chip does in the Airpods is the activation of the microphone when any of the ears are plugged in, and background noises are being filtered out to enable better sound transmission. An additional accelerometer is present to work with the microphone to give your voice the desired focus when you speak.

Also, the dynamic power optimization of the W1 chip helps give the Apple Airpods a 5-hour battery life and 15 minutes of charging time.

What is the new technology used in the leather industry?

What is the new technology used in the leather industry?

As the technological advancement of leather production continues to improve with the passing years, it is paramount to know how far it has come. It is said that almost 4 million across the globe are connected to leather manufacturing and production and is said to increase to outstanding figures soon.

These are a result of the plans that have been made to ensure to improve the qualities of leather, which are used in making many finished products that matter in our day-to-day activities. Examples are leather gloves, phone cases, travel boxes, watches, shoes, and clothing.


Scientists have also claimed that with the new advent of these new ideas and innovations for ensuring maximum leather productivity across the globe, many impending issues can be solved, and game-changing concepts can also be improved drastically. A very sound example of the problems as mentioned above is that it is one of the significant pollution agents in the world given its high use in demand; hence, the endless making of it.

There are numerous means of achieving maximum leather production, and the technology applied to make the process reality is what we will have a glance at. The use of animals and livestock for leather making has become a prominent technological innovation by private companies as well as government organizations. Despite its advantages, it has also been classified to be a threat to climate change.

Agriculture has now become a very active player in the causes of greenhouse gases and desertification. Also, it consumes nearly 90% of the water supply in most parts of the USA.


Another technology applied is "chrome," which is the method of tanning leather during the manufacturing process.  This process, also known as the WLCT (Waterless Chrome Tanning Technology), was developed by Central Leather Institute (CLRI) in Chennai, India.

Here, the water and the chrome substance are reduced to ensure tidier manufacturing processes. There is also a chance of better quality many times superior to the leather produced through the normal process.

With the presence of CLRI training centers and sound training of numerous students, the future of leather making is heading towards the right direction in ensuring quality and reliability in modern-day products. Mechanisms have also been put to place to add more facilities and training to the ones currently on the ground.

 Enzymatic Dehairing and Fibre Opening

Recent studies have shown how calfskins of Northern Indian cattle tend to have very stubborn pigments for removal in leather making. Aside from the Indian animals, many of the species have also been proven to face the same issue.

These calfskins have a higher form of melanin concentration, and a more elevated amount of enzymatic dehairing needs to be applied. These processes have also needed standardization through various tests and methods.

With dip and pile method, drum method, and grain side application, all necessary means to actualize melanin removal has been taken to new heights. Aside from that, it has made the manufacturing process more difficult, time-consuming, and costly, and that is why the dehairing method is one of the most sought-after melanin removal techniques.

With the presence of a compound called eumelanin, the skin absorption maxima of the chemicals extracted is shown to be on a very high level and underlines that melanin is the result of enzymatic dehairing and fiber opening.

How to choose the perfect watch brand for every outfit?

How to choose the perfect watch brand for every outfit?

Are you in a state of a dilemma on which watch will match your outfit you plan to wear for a friend’s bachelor party? This post is a must-read for you. Aside from that that matching a watch to your outfit can be a bit difficult, it can also be comfortable at the same time. Since men, most of the time, possess more than a single watch, to select the perfect one for an outfit can be difficult. Although a watch can be a small accessory that people often give little or no attention, it can either make you attractive or shabby. Therefore, whenever you want to match an outfit with a watch brand, here are some fits tips to know!

Formality Vs. Formality

One of the most principles of matching a watch brand with an outfit is to be sure of the fashion of the outfit. Formal or business dresses are best used alongside formal watches. That is, an outfit with a black-tie function requires a simple dress watch. If you are putting on a navy or black suit, matching it with a silver or gold case will be 100% unique! Meanwhile, you must be sure that the watch has a leather strap.

Casual Dress

Unlike other outfits, pairing a watch with a casual dress can be a bit difficult. Once he saw a man with a suit lifting his hand to check the time on a G-shock watch. It sounds absurd, right? While watches for formal events have a strap, the ones for a less formal occasion are often made with metal bands. Therefore, if you are in search of a watch to wear at casual events, watches without straps are the best model for you.

These watches match a collared shirt or T-shirt, boots, jeans are other casual dresses entirely. However, some men still prefer to wear leather-strapped watches on casual occasions as they are versatile and user-friendly.

Sport Watches

Even though watch band for casual events and the band for sport have similar features, these two events are different, and they have different watches meant for them. One similar major feature between these two events is that their watch band are both larger compared to a business or formal dress watch. Unlike casual watches, switching metal for a leather strap can be a wrong idea.

It is essential to know that watches for sports require no elegant timepiece or design. The most important features should be durability. You must be sure that the dial, case, and strap are made from sturdy material that makes them durable. Therefore, straps in darker or metal color and neutral colors are the best options for you if you are planning to pair a sports watch with a casual dress.

Leather vs. Leather

Another essential tip to know before matching a watch band with your outfit is the material in which the watch is made from. Often, watchband with a leather strap is suitable for shoes with leather material and color. That is, to match your outfit with your watch, you must first match your shoes with your belt. So, if your shoes are leather made, your belt must also be made from leather material. After that, you pair your watch band with the two items.

For instance, if you are putting on a black belt and shoes on your outfit, a black watchband should be matched with these two items. On the other hand, a brown belt and shoes on your outfit should be pair with a brown watch band. Likewise, brown or black belts and shoes can also be paired with silver and gold straps. For your high-quality leather watch bands, visit Hardiston New York today!

Metal vs. Metal

Matching the metal case of the watch, especially the frame around the face with another metal material is another tip to perfectly pairing your outfit with your watch band. Titanium, steel, silver, and gold are the metals used to make the watch case. Also, the finish of the watch case can be inlaid with jewels crystals or can be patterned, shiny, or Metta. Likewise, the shapes of the case can be round, polygonal, rectangular, or square.

Therefore, if you are putting on a gold watchband, you must make sure that other accessories such as the ring are made of gold.  Other pieces of jewelry, such as shoe buckles, cuff links, buckles on the back of your waistcoat, should be considered.

How did leather started to be used

Leather is often regarded as one of the evidence of human resourcefulness and ingenuity. Apart from the fact that this material has played an essential role in the advancement of human civilization, it is also known to have recorded 25% part of clothing. According to researches, there is no era in which leather is not used as a design and fashion.

Leather, like other materials in the world, has an interesting and antiquated history. Leather making is one oldest human operations. When compared to silk, wool, or cotton, leather has a very long history. For instance, while silk production began in 3000 BCE, wool began in 10,000 BEC, and cotton began in 5000 BCE. Meanwhile, leather making has been in practice for more than 7000 years.

During the classical period, our early ancestors hunt an animal for food to survive. The skin extracted from the animal was the use to make cloth for protection, footwear for smooth movement, and crude tents for shelters. Although our ancestor gives more attention to the food they get from these animals rather than the skin, era around 13,000 serves as a period of reformation. During this period, our progenitors began to value animal skins compared to the food by-product. After this period, the man started to find different methods of preserving their animal skins.

Most of the methods used at this time were traditional and were often passed from father to son through many generations. Although there were many methods used by our ancestors, the most important of them is the vegetable tanning. Ancient Hebrew settlers and Egyptians discovered this system by 400 BCE. This method involves drying of the fresh skin in the sun. And is it later soften by pounding in animal brains and fast. Afterward, it is preserved by smoking and salting the skin.

The Greeks discovered the tanning formulas with the use of tree barks and leaves, which are soaked to preserve the leather.

This advancement later spread to Rome, where military weapons such as saddles, harness, and shields as well as clothes and footwear.

Another era in which leather has a significant role in the development of human civilization was during the Middle Ages.

Products such as dining chairs became the cover of choice as it is easy to maintain.

With the growth of industrialization in the 18th and 19th centuries, there was a change in the demand for leather from the classic varieties of leather to the modern one as the old vegetable-tanned was not only thick but also hard for the new needs. Therefore, there was a considerable increase for softer, portable footwear with a sleek design. As a result of this, machines that perform unhairing, fleshing, and splitting was developed to meet these new demands.

Later the chrome tanning that requires the use of chemicals was introduced as an alternative for the old vegetable tanning. The development of the use of chromium eliminates all the manufacturing processes that require the use of traditional vegetable tanning. This method makes chemicals that replace all these processes.

Besides using the leather to produce footwear, clothes sandal, bags, military weapons, it is also used for bookbinding as it was popular during the Victorian time. For instance, the leather was used to immortalize Novels of famous authors that include Charles Dickens and Oscar Wilde. Today, the edition which has been immortalized now enjoyed a high level of readers and ratings.

In our world today, leather continues to play a significant role in marine applications, aviation, automotive as well as in commercial and residential furniture. The aesthetics and uniqueness of leathers have been dramatically enhanced by the sophisticated and chemical methods of producing them.
