Vegetable Tanned Leather From Italy

Vegetable Tanned Leather From Italy

There has been a movement in recent years towards the hand-crafted, back to basics, artisan traditions. Whether it be eats, treats, coffee, beer, soda, leather goods, and so forth, the result has been an increase in awareness of how what we consume and is produced, thus inspiring a demand for higher quality and more sustainably conscious goods.

But in the Italian region of Tuscany, this emphasis on tradition and quality has always been a way of life. When it comes to Tuscan leather, the slow and careful art of vegetable tanning has been passed down with pride through the generations to ensure it is the same today as it was hundreds of years ago. The result of this natural, chemical-free tanning method is a firm, strong leather that can last a lifetime. Not only is vegetable tanned leather extremely durable, but it is also the kind of leather that develops a beautiful patina over time and moulds to fit as it breaks in. Vegetable-tanned leather has a unique character all of its own that gets better with age... just like us.
