The beauty of the leathers we use
Vegetable tanned leather matures and trasforms with the passing of time. It is a rare material that embodies the signs of time as an expression of naturalness.
It is called "vegetagle tanning" for the use of vegetable tannins, obtained from the trunk and bark of trees. The extraction of these natural substances takes place in a way that does not damage the wood heritage because it is waste from wood working.
Vegetable tanned leather is biodegradable and hypoallergenic, free of chrome, metals and synthetic chemicals.
Another typical feature of vegetable tanned leather is the slight difference in color that always are between skin and skin, due to the presence of natural oils contained in them.
A vegetable tanned leather is so natural a product that it can be appreciated and recognized for its small signs, viens, for its scent and its its shades of color. All these features represent the authentic and tangible proof of a high quality product, which acquires value over time.
The leathers, engraved on by using laser technologies, come from all over the world and are not part of the typical industrial circuit of leather goods: that would be far from us, in terms of philosophy and sensitivity.
The leathers we use come from animals that have lived and worked with local populations, respecting the life they represented.
Like Asian camel skin, which still has insect bites on its surface.
The leathers proudly show the action that time generates on their surfaces, a sort of spontaneous ornament, which represents the true charm of our project: the beauty of imperfection.
