Vintage cameras given new life

Illitt Vintage collects and restores vintage rangefinder cameras, replacing their original leather trims with beautifully crafted wood veneers. Veneers are made from Mansonia,  Mahogany, Walnut and Cherry, each one being uniquely patterned to ensure each camera is equally unique.
