FAQ

About Italian Leather

Q.   How can I be assured your product is really MADE IN ITALY? 
A.    We travel to Italy on a regular basis and visit our design houses firsthand. We do our due diligence to ensure all our product is completely made in Italy. Read more about our Italian leather products.

Q.  How do you select your leather goods?
A.   We attend trade shows twice yearly in Milano, the fashion capital of the world. There we select from styles and colors being offered that season. Our inventory is specially made to order for us.

Q. Why is your leather considered exclusive?
A.  Our design houses show new styles twice a year for the fall/winter and spring/summer seasons. We select and buy styles in limited quantities and have them custom made to order for us. When our inventory of a certain style or color is sold out, we will most likely never get that style or color back again.

Q.  Why is Italian leather considered the best leather in the world?
A.   The Italian leather artisans have been working with leather for centuries. Leather making is considered an important part of the Italian culture, much like wine making. They take their trade very seriously, striving to be the world leaders in both leather design and construction. Most notably, the Italians have perfected the tanning process, by which leather is given its texture and color, by using 100% natural vegetable extracts. These vegetable extracts provide deeper, richer colors that age perfectly over time. This is what separates Italian leather from mass produced leather in other countries, which uses environmentally hazardous chemical tanning.

Q. Why is Italian Leather more expensive?
A.  A hide is not considered leather until it is tanned. Our Italian leather manufacturers still use the traditional natural vegetable tanning process. This process produces deeper, longer lasting leather and can take up to 40 times longer to complete. This natural process leads to long lasting leathers that age perfectly over time. Non-Italian leather uses a cheaper chemical based tanning process that does not lead to a long leather life and is harmful to the environment. Not only are the leathers used of higher quality, but the Italian leather artisans are highly paid professional designers that take great pride in their craft. Much like the Ferrari is to automobiles, Italian leathers are to bags.
