Why to use leather

WHY TO USE LEATHER

“HIDES ARE A BY-PRODUCT DERIVED FROM INDUSTRIAL FOOD PRODUCTION, THE ANIMALS ARE NOT RAISED FOR THEIR SKINS. IF THE HIDES WERE NOT UTILISED THEY WOULD BE DISCARDED OR DESTROYED”

We have been working with hides for three generations. The company was established in 1966 and has always operated a within this sector. Thanks to this experience, the quality of our products can be seen in its craftsmanship.

The use of animal skins for a variety of uses was one of the first discoveries of man. Our ancestors hunted wild animals for food, and used the skins for clothing, shoes and protection against the elements.

As in the past, skins are a product of industrial food production, the animals are not raised for their skins. If the re-use of skins in the leather industry did not exist the impact on the environment and the costs of disposing of the skins would be much higher.

Is it surprising that by using a by-product we are able to produce a valuable material by reducing waste?

“THE BIOLOGICAL TREATMENT OF WATER AFTER BEING USED IN THE TANNING PROCESS SUPPORTS RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT”

Continuous research has led to the development of non-polluting products, with the aim of respecting and preserving a sustainable environment.

Water is a fundamental part of the tanning process, and for this reason the reduction,

recycling and purification treatment of the water used in the process are being continuously improved.​

Modern tanning techniques enhance the natural material, while at the same time educating and valuing sensitivity and respect for the environment.

“IN THE HANDS OF AN ABLE CRAFTSMAN THE NATURAL QUALITY OF EVERY SKIN BECOMES A UNIQUE CHARACTERISTIC WHICH ENHANCES ITS IDENTITY”

Natural leather is not just strong and durable, but offers something which no other material can equal – that is, its natural characteristics.

It activates the senses, and lends itself to being looked at and touched. With the passage of time it is transformed, its natural textures and colouring making it something unique.
