We choose to begin our products with leather born from an extraordinary process. Formed by the skilled hands of master tanners, utilizing a precise mixture of vegetable tannins, pure local water and all the time necessary for this complex process. It takes time, patience, and the skillful combination of technology with tradition.
The carefully selected tannin colors give the leather an unmistakable warm aspect that becomes more intense with the passage of time and daily use. Choosing a product made of this leather means choosing a one-of-a-kind object that reflects the owner’s lifestyle. Each mark testifies to our choices, to our mistakes, to the life we have lived, each holding memories, images and emotions.
Vegetable-tanned leather does not contain any toxic substance harmful to man or environment. The raw hides we use are the discarded by-products of the food industry producing meat for human consumption. No animal is killed for its skin. Also, the production process of the leather takes care of every detail to minimize the environmental impact.
With the vegetable-tanned leather from the certified tanneries of the consortium, our customers can ask for the “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana” guaranteed tags that identify their finished products are made of certified leather. These progressively-numbered labels certify the top quality and Tuscan origin of the material as well as featuring a product traceability system.
