Vegetative treatment is a process born in nature. Vegetable-tanned leathers contain no toxic substances such as azo dyes, nickel, pentachlorophenol, chromium VI – all harmful to humans and the environment. These substances are the main cause of a number of allergies. Thanks to the use of only natural extracts and absence of heavy metals our leather is in perfect harmony with the environment.
Leather processing is subject to strict continuous monitoring. This control is performed by the “Italian Society of Allergological, Environmental and Occupational Dermatology” (SIDAPA).
Tuscan leather tanneries commit huge efforts and investments so as to control the waste process.
Due to their biological origin all waste products at the very process are recyclable.
Many of the substances used in the tanning process are recovered and reused in different fields mainly in agriculture.
NO ANIMAL WAS KILLED FOR ITS SKIN. The leathers we use are waste material from the food industry.
