Woman Ring holder eleonora: a high quality product handmade in the Florentine style. Discover the collection of Leather Accessories Woman di FP Pelletterie
The hexagonal leather ring holder is a typical accessory of the Florentine craftsmanship, so comfortable as to keep at home as to carry in your suitcase during travel to avoid the risk of dispersing your rings in the hotel room. Made, painted and decorated completely by hand, through the use of the real Florentine Leather it guarantees a great resistance over the years. The ring holder takes the name from Eleonora da Toledo, the Cosimo I first’s wife.

The original unlined Florentine leather is a natural material known for its resistance over time and it is obtained by treating the cowhide leather with a vegetable tanning, which mainly requires the use of natural products, as it was done in the past.

Painting process:
The rawhide leather is painted piece by piece, to get to a slightly different pattern every time which makes all the objects unique and unrepeatable. This coloring was invented by FP Pelletterie in the 1970s and it has come to this day thanks to the passage of the secret recipe from generation to generation. The vegetable tanning is also the oldest technique known, so much that until the end of the 19th century, almost all the leather objects were dyed to vegetable dye.

After the coloring, before the product is assembled, the leather receives one last treatment, that is a decoration made by gold or silver leaf. This material is typical of the Florentine artistic tradition, because it was also used (with different techniques) by painters such as Giotto and Cimabue. On each side the ring holder is decorated with the Lily of Florence.

The inside of this product is left to the natural to show the real raw leather, while at the base it is covered with a material that protects the jewels when they are laid.
