Italian Vegetable Dyed
Vegetable-tanned leather absorbs the traces of our life, it matures, it tans under the sun, it reveals the signs of time and use as the most personal expression of naturalness and truth.
Vacchetta leather does not lie, it is not afraid to be the testimony of time
Tuscany is the land of Renaissance; Tuscany is sweet hills and vineyards, culture and tradition, artists and master craftsmen sharing creativity and genius. Tuscany is the place where the ancient and noble art of the Medieval Guild of Leather Makers is still kept alive: the art of vegetable-tanning.
Master craftsmen, repositories of centuries of experience, follow with care and passion the slow process of turning raw hides into leather. Vegetable-tanning in Tuscany is an extraordinary productive process, performed by the skilled hands of master tanners, based on the exact mix of vegetable tannins, on the good Tuscan water and on all the time necessary. It takes time and patience, and the skillful combination of technology and tradition. The results are leathers that satisfy the needs of a niche market in which not only high quality, but also style and individuality are fundamental requisites.
