Our Leather

Superior in Quality

Vegetable tanned leather is a type of leather that is processed using natural tannins derived from plants. It is known for its durability, unique appearance, and ability to build character over time. Unlike leathers treated with synthetic chemicals, vegetable tanned leather is an environmentally friendly and sustainable option. It is often favored for its quality, authenticity, and natural aroma.


Made to Last

Vegetable tanning is an ancient tradition, perfected in Tuscany, known for its high quality and durability. Each piece of vegetable-tanned leather takes four to six weeks to create, and it lasts longer than synthetic leather. It is a more time-consuming process, accounting for only 10% of available leather, and it can be three times more expensive. This method dates back to 6000 BCE when early civilizations sought to weatherproof animal skins. Natural tannins from trees like quebracho or chestnut bind to the hide's collagen proteins, providing protection against decay and bacteria. However, today, 90% of leather goods use chrome or mineral tanning, which may appear softer but lacks the same longevity.
