It is all made by hand!
The most important task in making a leather object look precious has the owner.
Time and wear gives the leather's patina and uniqueness, creating a strong bond
between the product and its owner.
We use traditionally tanned leather from Tuscany, Italy. Tuscany is a region with a great tradition in tanning leather.
Cutting the leather.
Carving the leather.
Carving by hand gives an unique style and cannot be imitated by any other machine.
Dyeing the leather.
The dye I use is Fiebing's, one of great tradition in USA, produced since 1895. The painting technique here is called "sunburst" and is also used in painting guitars bodies. After dyeing I apply several special treatments to the leather for hydration and waterproofing.
Sewing the leather.
Hand sewing with 2 needles gives the item a long life and a beautiful look. The big difference between hand sewing and machine sewing is the thread behavior in case of cutting. In case of hand sewing the thread does not unweaves like the machine sewing does. We use special waxed thread for hand sewing.
Sealing the leather's edges.
For a nice feeling in the hand we bevel the edges and most important thing is sealing the edges with paint and bees wax.
