The most important feature in creating a unique bag is choosing the best leather. We select the best vegetable tanned Vachetta leather from the leather district of Santa Croce. The Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium was founded by a small group of Tuscan tanners. Today there are more than 20 affiliated tanneries, all operating in Tuscany, in the area between Pisa and Florence, sharing the same passion for vegetable tanned leather and the same production standards. Our tannery is a member and provides us with the highest quality Italian Vachetta leather and all our bags are certified.
