Product & Care instructions
What is vegetable tanned leather and why is Italian leather so famous and considered the best in the world?
This is due to the way we treat the leather. Instead of tanning it with heavy metals like chrome, aluminum, zirconium or titanium, we use vegetable oil. This process takes way longer than using metals but therefore the leather is of much higher quality, lasts a lot longer and is better for health and the environment. Tuscany is Italy’s capital for leather tanning. You will not find one big tanning company but more specialists, each responsible for one single tanning step only. After the vegetable tanning process the leather is called ‘Cuoio’.
What if I scratch the leather by accident?
Due to the vegetable oil tanning you can simply ‘repair’ the leather by using your own skin oil that your body produces. Carefully rub your finger over the scratch and see how the scratch will slowly disappear, while ‘fake tanned leather’ is only painted and you will have the scratch forever. All this makes Italian leather so special and separates it from the rest.
Are there any care instructions for the leather?
To keep the leather soft, we recommend the use of a colorless/neutral leather shoe polish, which nourishes it while protecting the right humidity.
Is there any difference between Made in Italy and Made in Firenze?
Tuscany and Florence in particular is the center of Italian leather expertise. All products offered on our online store are by Carlo Carmagnini and 100% Made in Firenze, which makes them even more precious.
