The art of creating Florentine leather predates recorded history. It’s a process that’s been passed down from father to son, slowly perfected over the millennia. First, the animal skins are purified in wooden drums, then soaked for days in a mix of tree and vegetable extracts before being hung to dry for as long as it takes. The result is a leather that’s luxuriously soft and supple, but with a durability that defies logic. Where most leathers fade over time, Florentine leather actually darkens and softens. This artisanal process can’t be duplicated in factories, because true luxury takes time and effort to create.
