Premium black Italian calfskin leather and nickel-plated bronze hardware.

Premium Calf Leather

All of our leather products are made with the finest quality calfskin from, arguably, the best tannery in Italy. Operating continuously for nearly 100 years, this partner is one of the most modern and environmentally safe leather finishers in the world. The leather quality - color, finish consistency, absence of flaws - speaks for itself.

Italian Polished Zippers

We use what most designers consider to be the finest zipper in the world. Manufactured in Italy, they are expensive but worth every Euro. They pull like a knife through butter, with just enough, but never too much, resistance. They won't catch or tear. They simply don't fail. It's not difficult to get excited about these components which exhibit the best in design and industrial technology.

Custom Bronze Hardware

All of the metal hardware - rings, buttons, feet, and zipper pulls - is handmade. Each piece is designed by our artists, cast in ancient bronze using the lost-wax casting process, and then plated for a polished (or optional brushed) nickel finish. Harder than rock, these pieces will last forever. Their design is intended to reflect each unique collection.
