Tony perotti's lifelong respect for the environment has led him to seek out more ecologically-correct tanning methods that are non-toxic to both humans and the environment
Were is our leather come from
Made in Tuscany, Tony Perotti buys there from The Genuine Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium based in Tuscany, along the banks of Arno river.
How are the skins obtained
The raw hides used by our associated tanneries derive from the slaughter of cattle destined, from the outset, to the food sector and they come from European farms
Which materials are used in processing
The leather is tanned using natural plant - based tannins. As opposed to synthetic products, tannins come from renewable sources and are valued for their antioxidant, antibiotic and antibacterical properties
Are the products free from metals?
The production process of our associated tanneries is metal-free, and it always has been, thanks to the raw materials linked to the centuries-old history of vegetable tanning.
The Consortium applies the guidelines of the standard ISO 26000 and its trademark Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana puts at the center the respect for the environment and human rights, transparency and legality
