In an Ancient part of Northern Spain
A family of tanners follow a tradition dating back three generations. Working with full shoulder skins they maintain a legacy that seems timeless. In keeping of this traditional method of tanning all the skins are vegetable tanned and finished with oils thus obtaining a result that speaks for itself.
In a Corner of Tuscany (Italy)
It is in the heart of the incomparable beauty of the Tuscan; landscapes, between Pisa and Florence, that the noble art of vegetable tanning is kept alive. A handcraft tradition, as precious as ancient, that today represent a fundamental heritage of art and handcraft for Tuscany. Vegetable tanning, known since the Paleolithic; is a long and articulated process based on ancient recipes and knowledge, handed on from father to son until today.
The hands of master tanners have worked for more than two hundred years, to offer today a unique and timeless leather.
Vegetable tanning allows raw hides to become Genuine Italian and Spanish Vegetable Tanned Leather. In full respect of environment and nature. It is in large wooden drums that the leather is slowly converted in a strong material that can last throughout time. A slow transformation, taking up to forty days, a prodigious process combining the use of tannins, new technologies and the passing of time.
Aroma and Powders From Nature
Tannins are extracted from trunks, fruits, leaves and even roots of plants such as chestnut tree with mimosa and Argentinean quebracho. Giving authentic characteristics to leathers. Tannins provide unique characteristics to leather, making it immediately recognisable from any other methods of tanning with qualities including warm and brilliant colours, soft touch, resistance and its unique aroma of leather, the typical aroma of woods.
