Why buy Italian leather?
Italian leather is well known in the fashion industry as the very best because of its excellent quality. The craftsmanship and care that goes into manufacturing Italian leather stock is better than most comparable leather product in the world and that means only the best quality hides are used.
We spend days, literally, in tanneries around Naples, Benevento, and Marche going through the hides available and handpicking the right ones, stopping only for pizza every so often. It is hard work but someone has to do it.
But what exactly makes Italian leather so special?
- It’s a high quality material. Italian leather is a durable and well-made. A great deal of craftsmanship is put into making Italian leather products with the highest standards. As Italian leather isn’t mass produced it takes much longer to make than the cheaper factory made alternatives.
- Italian Leather is made to last. When compared to other types of leather, Italian leather is the most long-lasting. It can withstand everyday wear and tear, with most nicks and scratches being easily wiped away. We guarantee our leather for life because we know we can trust our product.
- It is one of a kind. Vegetable tanned Italian leather has a truly a unique appearance. The marks on the hides are not imperfections – they are the result of the natural tanning process and give a distinctive look. No two naturally tanned items ever look alike.
- Maintaining its appearance is easy. You don't need to constantly clean your bag when it is made of Italian leather. In fact, ageing only adds to the beauty and uniqueness of your leather bag. It can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth from time to time, but it isn’t always necessary.
With ongoing use your piece grows softer and develops its own individual markings that become part of its unique identity. The result? A supple material that rivals the comfort of an heirloom, with a look as personal as your own journey.
