How does it work:
The history of tanning has origins in prehistory but the most important stage dates back to the beginning of the twentieth century when chrome tanning was invented, a technique that makes leather incorruptible, adapting to different types of products.
It is a simple, fast and economical technique. The important role of a craftsman is to differentiate and always improve his product.
Italy accounts for about 16% of the world’s leather production. All of our leather comes from Veneto, Tuscany, Campania and Lombardy.
The Italian tanning industry has historically been considered a world leader for high technological and qualitative development formed mainly by small and medium-sized businesses.
“Made in Italy “ has dominated an economic importance and the Italian product is unanimously considered the first in the world and the turnover exceeds 4.5 billion euros.
