The real Tuscan cowhide leather is obtained by vegetable tanning done by hand. This material, typical of the Florentine tradition, has the characteristic of changing color over time, as if the bag could change look every year, becoming more and more soft especially according to the frequency of use and its sun exposure. The cow is very durable, so much so that it was used to make boots for shepherds and military in the past. No animal is slaughtered to make these products, since the leather comes from the food industry.

Painting process:
Before being assembled, the bag undergoes a process of vegetable tanning that transforms an already great cowhide into real Florentine leather. This phase prefers the use of natural materials such as tannins derived from mimosa and chestnut, trying to remain as faithful as possible to the recipe that was used in the past in Florence. The handmade tanning makes the leather shine over time, letting it change color shades year after, depending on the use that it makes and the exposure to the Sun. Tuscany still the most important place in Italy for vegetable tanned leather.

Sign of times:
The cowhide leather is forever. It is not afraid about rain or frequently use. This material, in fact, allows to try to remove the surface scratches that usually accumulate year after year, using the simple neutral cream. This is due to the particular vegetable tanning process made by hand, which let the leather to absorb the color in deep, without it remaining only on the surface as it usual happens in industrial products. Year after year, this leather acquires more beauty and imperfection, remaining unique in its kind.
