Vegetable tanned vacchetta leather

Vegetable tanning is an artisan tradition that the 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 into 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.

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. The colours of tannins give the leather an unmistakable warm and brilliant shade that becomes more intense with the passing of time and the daily use.

Choosing handmade leather bags made of Tuscan Vegetable-Tanned Leather means choosing a one-of-a-kind object that reflects the owner’s lifestyle.
