"Vegetable-tanned leather absorbs the traces of our life, it matures without ruining.
The natural ageing does not compromise its resistance.
It reveals the signs of time and use as the most personal expression of naturalness and truth.
Vegetable tanning is an artisan tradition that 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 in wooden drums, in full respect of man and the environment. An 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, vegetable tanning is still nowadays the most traditional, the most recognisable, the only one able to give leather unique characteristics. It is able to join comfort and look, fashion and tradition, uniqueness and versatility of the product." Conzorzio Vera Pelle Italiana Conciata al Vegetale
