This is not only genuine leather. This is real Tuscan cowhide leather, probably the strongest on the hearth. This material, obtained through a vegetable tanned process done by hand, is typical of the Florentine craftsmanship and it has the ability to change color over time, shades after shades depending on the type of use that everyone makes. This means that each one could have its own different bags. A few centuries ago in Florence this strong leather it was used for the shoes of shepherds and military. The leather comes from the food industry, so as no animal is slaughtered to make these products.

Painting process:
The moment that precedes the assembly and finishing of the bag is that of the coloring, mad by hand using vegetable tanning. This process mainly uses natural materials such as tannin extracted from chestnut or mimosa, retracing the ancient techniques of the old Florentine leatherworkers. It is a particular practice that allows the leather to have shades of color always different from the initial one, year after year depending on how much it is used and how much it is exposed to the Sun. Today Tuscany is still the first district in Italy for production of vegetable tanned leather.

Sign of times:
Born to last forever, the Tuscan cowhide leather is one of the best materials with which you can make a bag, since it is resistant to water and especially to frequent use. This material, in fact, thanks to the tanning processes it undergoes, allows to try to remove the surface scratches that are usually a sign of times. This characteristic is given by the fact that the color is spread by hand, penetrating in the deep of the leather and not remaining only on the surface as happens in low-quality leathers.
