ABOUT LEATHER

We pay a lot of attention to the selection of materials that we work with. Today, phrase “Italian leather” doesn’t guarantee quality. There is more than 1000 leather tanneries in Italy and only 22 of them are part of the Consortium of Tuscan Vegetable Tanned Leather.

The Consortium acts as guarantor and ambassador of this Tuscan excellence throughout the world, an undertaking it has consolidated with the creation of the quality trademark guaranteeing quality and origin of leathers produced by its member tanneries.

All of our watch bands are made of Walpier Buttero and Badalassi Carlo Pueblo leathers. These tanneries is a part of the Consortium. Buttero is the most famous article of the Conceria Walpier, the recipe has been improving over 45 years and reached the top of perfection. It is full grain and has a nice balance between supple and firm.

Badalassi Carlo Tannery are well known for their premium vegetable tanned leathers and the beautiful colors are able to produce. Pueblo veg tan leather is their top grade, it is full grain and has a nice supple feel with a small amount of firmness. This leather has a unique rustic look that adds beautiful depth to the leather and makes for an amazing patina as it ages.
