The SE180 Leather Case compliments volume knob protector and LED light design of the SE180 and is available in 2 colors - Navy and Black.

The leather case for the SE180 was made from a process called "Full Vegetable Tanning". This traditional method has been used in Italy for over 200 years. The process brings out special characteristics of leather while creating a natural tanning look. A variety of trees and plants are involved in this tanning process which takes about 40 days to complete and only the most experienced professionals in Italy possess the skills to do it.

Badalassi Carlo was made by Professor Carlo Badalassi, who is known for his excellent skills with leather. Unlike modern methods, he uses a traditional method of making leather that requires extensive time and devotion. His reputation is well-known among top expensive brands due to his focus on the leather quality over quantity. This special leather material has a lot of oil in it that will allow the leather to shine the more it is used. Many tests and trials have been done with the creation of the leather case in order to highlight the unique design of the SE180.

Established in 1973 in San Miniato, Tuscany, Walpier Tannery has been in business for three generations and has a long tradition of making leather products based on vegetable tanning process. The tannery handles 100% cow hair leathers imported from France and is a member of Vera Pelle, Italy’s association of vegetable-based leather tanners. The traditional vegetable tanning technology of Walpier Tannery has been handed down father to son for centuries in the Tuscany region. The tanning process usually takes 40 days by putting raw leather with natural tanning extracted from a variety of trees in a drum. This is a processing method only practiced by Italian tanners of the world. Leather products that undergo the vegetable-based tanning process show the owner’s lifestyle vividly and make the products their own as it takes a long time to break in depending on the owner’s way of handling.
