Words from the manufacturer: “Etniko leather is made for the refined taste. It is suitable for those who like to create collections combining fabrics with warm atmospheres, geometric textures, and typical natural fiber weaves from exotic countries.
The lines that intersect each other cross the entire surface of the skin and form a natural ‘design’ which is called ‘palmellato’.” Unlike ordinary printing and embossing leather processing that use machines and plates to imprint patterns on to leather, “the ‘palmellato processing’ is a manual process that is carried out by expert hands with large rotating cork rollers that manage to give the skin a pleasant grain appearance with small squares on its entire surface, like a mesh of tiny cubes.
Handling the leather creates a beautiful and characteristic bi-color, or pull-up effect, due to being drum-dyed and stuffed with natural oils and waxes. This leather depicts the perfect combination of elegance and sophistication and is, in our opinion, part of the category of ‘timeless’ items.
This leather represents our Tuscan leather manufacturing tradition and it certificate by “Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium.”
