Behold Taurillion Novillo, a rich leather that has the advantages of both Togo/Clemence and Epsom. In limited production since 2015, it has now taken center stage in Hermès new fall line-up.
Taurillion Novillo, made from bull leather is a natural finely textured grain, much finer than either Togo or Clemence. It is lighter in weight and more rigid than these other two leathers. Like Epsom, Taurillion Novillo is rich in saturation and absorbs color beautifully. But having a natural grain, as opposed to a pressed grain, Taurillion Novillo is more resistant to scuffs and scratches than Epsom.
Seen here in our Vert Vertigo 30cm Birkin, it is clear that Taurillion Novillo is a great addition to the Hermes leather family.
