"Every year, in Iceland alone, 25‘000 tons of fish skins were thrown away from fishery." - With modern methods they
are now upcycled to unique and environmentally friendly leather.
Leather is a natural material and it can change with time depending on use and of the lifestyle of it's owner. This is one of the typical characteristics if high quality leather.
All our leathergoods are entirely Made in Italy by artisans that have decades of experience. The small family companies that are sewing our bags and wallets are owned by local families since 50 years and more.
All the calf and sheep leathers stem from the Tuscany and the Venice region, the vegetable-tanned lining leathers are from England.
The fish skins come from Iceland, they are a by-product of the food industry, we do not use skins that are harvested for any other purpose.
Usually no special care is necessary for the leathers. Just remember that it is a skin and that it would dry out from being close to a heater or in a damp place for a long time.
