Fizik Aliante: Hand Dyed Brown Italian Set

I hand dyes this scarred kangaroo leather to a dark brown. Then I perforated stripes and highlighted them in the Italian three colours for this Fizik Aliante saddle with coordinating bar tape and two piece saddle bag. Everything is done by my hands including the dyeing, skiving the edges of the bar tape and stitching all of the seams (2.3 mm stitches).
