Story of Tanning

Story of Tanning


Allow me to share with you the story of leather tanning, an ancient art that has been intertwined with mankind’s history for centuries.


From its origins in shelter and protection against the cold using hides from livestock, to the sophisticated techniques we employ today, leather tanning has truly stood the test of time.

We believe that the techniques of tanning, known as vegetable or bark tannings, have originated in Egypt on the Nile river, making this a time-honored tradition that continues to be practiced to this day. It is an important milestone in mankind’s technological development, yielding a durable and versatile material.

Middle Ages

Throughout the middle ages, the story of tanning flourished, particularly in Rome.

During the Italian Renaissance, Tuscany perfected the art of leather tanning.

The leather tanning industry thrived in medieval Italy, producing leathers of unparalleled quality.

Today, old generations pass down these ancient techniques to the new generations, protecting their secrets.

Italy is a global leader, producing 16% of the world’s leather and two-thirds of Europe’s.

At our leather shop, we source all of our leather from the renowned ‘Golden Triangle’ of leather production in Tuscany.
