The Italian brand not only pays great attention to the quality of its products but also strives to limit its negative impact on the environment. They purchase high-quality, free-range leather that comes from selected European farms and is a by-product of the food industry. Not only do they ensure their products are 100% cruelty-free, but they also make some of their goods from vegetable-tanned and metal-free leather, while they order others from tanneries certified by the LWG (Leather Working Group).
The vegetable tanning process has a very complex structure and is based on the use of tannin, the active ingredient responsible for transforming animal skins into a compact and durable material that can last for decades. This natural substance can be found in many trees and vegetables in varying concentrations, depending on the species. These natural tanning extracts make vegetable-tanned leather unique and easily distinguishable.
As a matter of fact, vegetable-tanned leather has many benefits: it does not contain toxic substances such as azo dyes, nickel, PCP, or chromium vi, and is well tolerated by those with metal allergies. Thus, the negative impact on the environment is minimized, which makes their products as sustainable as possible.
