Vegetable tanning is an artisan tradition that the tanneries associated to the Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium have handed down from father to son for over 200 years, using both antique recipes and state-of-the-art technology.
An astonishing process based on the use of natural tannins extracted from chestnut or Argentinean quebracho trees, on modern technologies and machineries and, mainly, on the slow passing of time... all the time necessary. Nearly forty days are actually needed to transform raw hides into unique vegetable-tanned leathers.
Among the various tanning methods, the vegetable tanning is still nowadays the most classical, the most traditional, the most recognisable, the only one able to give leather unique characteristics, the most natural, the most environmental-friendly.

Vegetable tanning is a working process taking inspiration from nature and - in full harmony - to nature going back.
Vegetable tanning means materials safeguarding human health, result of the combination between craftsmanship and up-to-date technology, t radition and new research, always following the principle of a continuous improvement.
