full grain vegetable-tanned leather

The leather we use in Geometric Goods

Sourced from the Italian tannery in Tuscany region, the area between Pisa and Florence, from the tannery that is sharing our passion for vegetable-tanned leather and has high standards of production. It was founded in 1975 year.  Over the years the company philosophy has concentrated on continual technological innovation so as to produce a high quality product while safeguarding the environment.

Vegetable tanning of leather is a process of transformation of raw hides into the leather using natural tannins extracted from trees. During a long period of time in full respect of man and the environment, using wooden drums, modern technologies, and machinery, this astonishing process leads to the creation of premium quality material.

The leather we use are carefully selected to ensure the highest quality. It's premium grade, full-grain leather which means that during production it has not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed to remove natural markings or imperfections. These hides retain their entire thickness, including it's top layer that contains the hide's strongest fibers, that makes it durable and strong. It also saves its beautiful natural texture. Full-grain leather as well is highly breathable, which prevents excessive build-up of moisture from prolonged contact. As full-grain leather ages, it naturally burnishes and develops a highly desirable patina, a characteristic that other grades of leather do not possess.

Here are the main characteristics that disctiguishe it among others:

  • the best durability properties among any other leather types
  • beautiful natural feel of touch
  • softness
  • diverse texture thorugh the hide, from smooth to wrinkled 
  • presence of marks and scars that animal obtains through its life spam
  • variation of color in 1-2 tones depending on the hide and area it represents 
ISO 9001 +14001 certifications are essential today to ensure the customer not only the excellence and quality of our product, but also sustainability and therefore the great attention that the tannery has always paid to the environment. Our raw material is a WASTE FROM THE FOOD INDUSTRY: the tannery processes this waste using a HIGHLY TECHNOLOGICAL production organization to reduce the environmental impact more and more to a minimum and always allow us to complete the CIRCULAR ECONOMY CYCLE that comes naturally to us: our tannery wastewater (which enjoys a high organic concentration) is treated in the consortium purifier and transformed into fertilizers for agriculture while the water (98% purified) is reintroduced into the Arno river.
    With the help of engineers and chemists we are even working on a process that allows us to re-introduce the purified water no longer into the river but back into our production system, without taking new water from the aquifers.
