Fizik Arione: Textured Leather Speedy Stripes

A red and yellow striped treatment of the old favourite Arione Speedy Dots perforations for Bruce's red and yellow Pegoretti. Across the road from Bruce's work is a leather merchant and he managed to find a remnant of the (almost) perfect leather for the job. He sent it along with the saddle all the way from America. It was a bit thick so I split it back to the ideal thickness. There's enough left over for his next saddle project.
