Bovine Leather hides and all the other animal skins in general are unique products of their kind: since ancient times man has used the leather of all kinds of animals hunted or bred for various uses. Today, as then, leather is an extremely versatile material with inimitable characteristics and suitable for the most disparate contexts and uses: you can in fact use leather to make bags, wallets, small leather goods, clothing, belts, books, saddlery, harness and bindings or use it to cover furniture or for upholstery projects. For whatever purpose you use them, leathers are a unique and long lasting material, which despite technological progress has never been replaced because it still represents the best choice both from an economic, technical and environmental point of view.
Yes, you got it right, using bovine leather hides helps the environment as they are, in fact, recycled materials. The faux leathers, sometimes called Eco or Vegan leathers, are nothing but derivatives of the oil industry and have a much worse environmental impact than genuine leather. In addition, cattle are not raised for their skin but for meat, using their skin means dignifying their sacrifice and not letting their coat go to waste. Finally, the tanned leather in Italy represents an excellence worldwide as regards the quality of the materials and the high environmental standards that lead to a very low impact on nature.
