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. More details here.
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
- 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
