The Italian operation based in the famous Santa Croce area (between Pisa and Florence), a well-known tanning area for top class fashion is led by Alessandro Monti and Fabrizio Mariani cumulating over 40 years' experience in the leather industry.
We specialise in curing and grading hides from central and southern Europe. Main origins of hides are Spain, Italy, Belgium and also Poland. We also cut hides into wet-salted croupons or double butts, shoulders, bellies and backs or dossets.
We also sell selected wet blue hides, splits and cow hide rugs through our other group division, Nick Winters Leather.
