An Artisan Tradition - Natural Tanned Leather

Vegetable tanning is an artisan tradition that the Tuscan tanneries have handed down from father to son  for centuries, mixing antique recipes and state-of-the-art technology.

The transformation from raw hides into a material that will resist throughout time is a process that slowly happens into wooden drums, in full respect of the environment.  The astonishing process based on the use of natural tannins extracted from trees, on modern technologies and machineries and on the slow passing of time.

Among the various tanning methods, the vegetable tanning is still the most traditional, the most recognisable, the only method able to give unique characteristics to leather. The ability to join comfort and look, fashion and tradition, uniqueness and versatility of the product.  The unique tanning method leaves leather in its most natural state as it is the only leather that gives unique characteristics as it develops a phenomenon patina effect that deepens in color and adds exquisite gloss over time.
