Tuscan

Tradition

We are tuscan tanners, we are artisans, we are tailors of the vegetable tanned leather.

Ours is not simply an industry, it is a family.

Ours is a source of ideas and creativity that take shape in our classic but modern Vacchetta, a high-valuable and high-quality bovine leather, with unique features, full of unmistakable sensations for smell, sight and touch.

Our

PHILOSOPHY

Precious are our bovine raw hides that arrive from the best cattles from France and North Europe, preserved only with coarse salt in order to keep the freshness; our raw hides are taken from what is left from the human meat consumption and we take this discarded-by product to give it new value through the tanning process that led leather to be rot free over time. Precious are our wooden drums, where leather comes to life, where leather is treated to last forever. Precious is our water, which rinses the skin from its impurities and acts together with vegetable tannins to make it new life. So precious are our tannins, powders obtained from the bark, the trunk, the leaves and the fruits of chestnut, quebracho and mimosa plants, extracts of unique and natural properties. Our ancient recipes of animal, vegetable and marine oils and fatliquors are precious and give the skin softness and elasticity, and we cherish it as treasures of our experience. Precious are our dyes that penetrate into the fibers of the leather and color it with brilliant tones, without ever being dull or artificial and whose small differences in tone guarantee only the uniqueness of the product. Precious are our chains and our hooks to which the skins are hung, left to the slow drying of time; our machines and our dry drums, that tumble the skin making it soft and silky. Precious are our pads and our spraying machines that finish the full grain leather, coloring it and giving it a warm and transparent appearance; our rolls lined with felt and rolls made with Amber stones that polish the leather by rubbing the surface that naturally shines. In all this, our hands are precious that take care of every single skin, considering it as a unique material, as a creation to take care of, as something, indeed, precious.

MASTER CRAFTSMEN

The real classic

“vacchetta”

And so, our real and classic “Vacchetta”, 100% vegetable tanned, comes in the most varied looks: from the natural versions, both smooth and tumbled, to show itself naked and changing appearance and color with the passage of time; to the greased versions and with special pull-up effects, whose small outcrops of fat patinas are removable with a simple cloth, bringing the surface back to its soft and full touch; passing through hand stained or aniline-finished finishings that give the leather transparency and brilliance, to arrive at more technical solutions that meet the most varied requirements while maintaining the characteristics of a natural and iconic leather. Just as we ourselves age and change appearance, so is the vegetable tanned leather that changes and becomes more beautiful with its wrinkles, its veins and its small imperfections that are not to be considered defects, but peculiarities of a true natural product.
