The leather is obtained by the tanning of animal skin. The tanning occurs through a physicochemical process that turns a perishable raw material into a noble and stable one, which has countless possibilities of uses.
The leather possesses specific characteristics that cannot be matched by synthetic materials: it is porous, allowing the skin to “breathe”, being permeable and providing comfort when it is used. It is also elastic and flexible, resistant to both traction and abrasion.
The Leather in use
The tanned leather is used as the basic material in the production of an array of accessories such as shoes, belts, wallets, bags, coats, hats, furniture, automotive seats, etc.
