In the sectors we work in, the quality of leather is not generic but evaluated according to specific parameters.
Where the raw material comes from is fundamental. We only use exclusive raw hides from the European Union for our articles, because there are very demanding rules that consider the wellbeing of the animals in the right measure. This reflects in the excellence of the finished product, where no holes or branding marks can be found.
Our leathers can be defined as Made in Italy according to Italian Law no. 55 of 8 April 2010. The whole production process, which includes hide preparation, tanning, dyeing and finishing, is carried out in Italy.
We obtained the UNI 11239 "Leather from Italy - Full Cycle" mark in 2015. With a dedicated traceability system which includes numbered labels to be placed on the products made (bags, sofas, armchairs, etc.), we guarantee our clients leather that is 100% Italian.
To us, UNI EN ISO 9001 Quality Management System certification means compliance with regulations. The system is a valid instrument for our continual improvement, and over time it helps reduce costs and risk factors drastically by organising and structuring the work carried out. An additional advantage is that the performance of the system itself is periodically evaluated and monitored.
The tannery industry has been facing themes tied to sustainability for a while, with the aim of improving its environmental, ethic and social impact, and giving information on some aspects that not everyone knows, for example that the leather industry is based mainly on the treatment and recycling of a by-product of the meat, dairy and wool industries.
Here are some important points that align us with many others in the sector who are trying to go further along this road:
1. Full compliance with environmental regulations in force and product safety regulations.
2. A commitment to energy efficiency.
3. A commitment to work using the best practices, to always anticipate environmental checks and reach carbon reduction objectives more.
4. Definition of the “Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)" and the "Environmental" Footprint" for leather.
Finally, in order to manage and enhance our environmental performance in a systematic manner, we chose to follow the international requirements and regulations specified in ISO 14001:2015 - Environmental management systems.
