Our leather is made wherever possible using natural processes with centuries of tradition in small carefully selected tanneries throughout Europe, including Italy, France, Belgium and Germany.

Every single piece of our leather is unique.

It has its own grain, structure and character and we match each piece to the function it has been designed for. Like us, leather changes slowly over time. Exposure to sunlight darkens the colour. Everyday use, scratches and natural oils allow it to develop its own character. How you live you life, will be reflected in your bag and will become part of your life story.

Vegetable extracts

Every piece of leather is prepared using natural vegetable extracts from a variety of wood, bark, fruit, roots and leaves. Environmentally friendly with no harsh chemicals, it’s a slow process taking up to six months from start to finish. The end result is a beautiful rich leather made to last a lifetime.
