5 Reasons Why you Should Invest in Leather Craftsmanship

What do all Italians have in common? Their love for food, art & design, and quality craftsmanship. 

The medieval craft guilds may be long gone, but the techniques, the skills, the knowledge, the spirit of Italian tradition is still intact in world-class objects such as, Murano glass, Sicilian Maiolica tiles, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and Florentine leather, just to name a few.

These traditions are kept alive by the hands of thousands of artisans who take pride in their regional specialties. They are so ingrained in the country’s DNA that even in the twenty-first century the products of their labour are recognized around the world as a benchmark of quality

This is the main reason why I decided to establish my fashion company in Italy; because in a world of fast fashion and fleeting trends, the true value of a handmade product is experienced through its history and craftsmanship.  These are my top 5 reasons why buying Italian leather craftsmanship is worth every cent.



You're getting the best leather in the world

Italian leather has been famous for its quality and durability since the Middle Ages when Florence became the capital of Europe's artisan leather workshops, with craftsmen making everything from shoes and accessories to decorated saddles, leather armour, and even ornate book bindings.

From these ancient roots, a thriving leather production spread across Italy everywhere; from tiny hill town workshops to urban designer boutiques. Italian leather is still considered the best in the world today and our signature lightweight leather comes from a factory in Biella, just outside of Milan, which is at the forefront of technological and sustainable advances in leather tanning.
