Italian vegetable-tanned leather absorbs the traces of our life, it matures, it becomes more beautiful with wear. Many of the tanneries we work with are multi-generational crafts people who learned this unique skill from their forefathers.
Tuscany is the land of Renaissance; Tuscany is the area of Italy where the art of vegetable tanning leather skins is centered.
Master craftsmen, repositories of centuries of experience, follow with care and passion the slow process of turning raw hides into the highest quality leather. Vegetable-tanning in Tuscany is an extraordinary process, performed by the skilled hands of master tanners, based on the exact mix of vegetable tannins, with incredible patience, and the skillful combination of technology and tradition. The results are leathers that not only high quality, but become better with age.
“Each mark testifies to our choices, to our mistakes, to the life we have lived. Every trace holds memories, images and emotions.”
