Every product in our store is pure Italian leather, and made according to the time-tested ways which have made this region synonymous around the world with uncompromising quality. The majority of our products, especially Tuscany Leather bags, are manufactured in one of the world's fashion capitals, Florence (Firenze, in Italian); a city synonymous with beauty.
We have a said a firm "No! Non c'è modo!" to cheap overseas manufacture. It is a craft that Italians are proud of, and it is handed on from generation to generation. And those who make the products, in turn sell those same products with a sense of care and pride.
Tuscany Leather Tanning Process
The Tuscan district of Santa Croce sull´Arno is the place where our creations come to life, step by step from the selection of materials up to the last details.
Tanning began here in the mid-19 C, and today 35% of Italian leather production.
The whole process happens with respect of the natural environment, thanks to the vegetable tanning process, the key to our manufacturing philosophy.
Vegetable tanning uses in fact natural substances, the tannins, which give the leather unique qualities such as warm colors and a beautiful, varying shine to the surface of the finished product. This ancient art is representative of the great value of these excellent bags.
