In addition also the shoulder strap is handmade in cowhide leather and it is completely adjustable.

Loved in Italy and abroad, the Tuscan cowhide leather is obtained through a process of vegetable tanning, following the techniques of the ancient Florentine leather craftsmen. What is really interesting of this leather is its chameleon characteristic, which allows it to change color over time, as if the bag could change its look year after year, also taking the shape of the wearer. But first of all, the cowhide leather is a very durable material, so much so that in the past the artisans of Florence used to use it for the footwear of shepherds and military. The production of this product uses only leather from the food industry, so as no animal is directly slaughtered.

Painting process:
The coloring process is the key passage that makes the cowhide unique and it is made only by hand through a vegetable tanning, which mainly involves the use of natural materials such as tannin extracted from plants such as chestnut or mimosa. The use of these natural products gives life to the leather, which assumes the capacity to change its nuance year after year, reaching different shades depending on how much you wear it and how much you expose it to the sunlight. This technique has mainly involved Tuscany over time, which remains proudly in the lead for the production of vegetable tanned leather.

Sign of times:
The cowhide leather is a material that last forever. It can be used for decades, without particular damage. It is resistant to water and to the signs of time, so much so that it allows you to try to remove the surface scratches that inevitably appear year after year. This, however it seems magic, is due to the particular vegetable tanning made by hand, which allows the leather to fully absorb the color in its depth. When the first part of the color is superficially removed, you can try to restore it using a simple cloth and neutral cream.
