the SADDLE COLLECTION
This collection features an amazing Italian leather that radiates the natural sumptuosity that is intrinsic to the highest-quality materials being brought forward by timeless leather craftsmanship. The hides are first treated using a natural shrinking process that renders a particularly rich texture and supple, yet substantive body. The deep pigmentation and multilayered coloring are the result of the ensuing two-fold tanning process consisting of, first, a vegetable tanning process that is followed by aniline dying in circular drums. The hides are finally hand-glazed and hung to dry to create a singular, natural gloss that enhances the intrinsic beauty of the leather and helps protect it. Perfected over centuries, these processes bring about the unique characteristics of each skin, making each handbag in a one-of-a-kind piece.
