Slimline teardrop keyrings with this late 1950s/early 1960s Alfa Romeo Milano badge are one of our most popular keyrings – and are almost always ordered in red leather.
Customers have been asking if we could make an Alfa Romeo keyring using a ‘special leather’ as we do with some keyrings for other marques.
The problem has been that most ‘special leathers’ in a grade suitable for making keyrings are not produced in a red colour………………but the problem has now been solved as we have discovered just one tannery which can supply genuine red pigskin leather !
Pigskin leather has always occasionally been used for keyrings by some prestige marques such as Aston Martin & occasionally Jaguar.
Pigskin leather is regarded as a ‘luxury’ material but is also very hard wearing with a lovely texture and ideal ( but expensive ! ) for making keyfobs.
Here is the result – an individually handmade and handstitched Alfa Romeo keyring with a red slimline teardrop keyfob in genuine pigskin leather .
