The Disciplinary contains a precise definition of “vegetable tanned leather in Tuscany”, establishes that the production process in its qualifying phases is carried out entirely on the Tuscan territory and provides that the leathers produced under the Vegetable Tanned Leather brand in Tuscany comply with a technical production sheet with precise physical and chemical parameters of reference.
The vegetable-tanning process is based on the use of tannins, the active ingredient responsible for the transformation of the animal hide into a compact and resistant material. Tanins can be found in many different trees and plants, in variable concentration according to the different species. These natural tannin extracts make vegetable-tanned leather unique and easily distinguishable.
Each genuine leather product by Sabbatini & Turco is certified with the guarantee tag issued by the “Vera Pelle Italiana Conciata al Vegetale” consortium. The warranty tag features a supply chain traceability system that certifies the quality and origin of the product.
