Women's shoulder bag made of real vegetable tanned leather, with a vintage effect.
Vegetable tanning is an ancient technique that dates back to the medieval period and developed in Tuscany in the lands located along the Arnò river. The leather is placed in the barrels with water containing tannins (natural dyes, coming from plants and tree bark). The barrels are in rotation and shaking for about 48 hours. This technique allows to obtain a softer and more flexible leather.
This processing of tanning is 100% ecological.
