Foglizzo leather is a natural product variation in color, tone, thickness and texture are part of the beauty of this material. Full aniline leather will have a higher variations between dye lots, while semi-aniline leather are more consistent in color and uniformity. For those reasons we recommend a Cutting for Approval (CFA).
Foglizzo leather is a natural product that thanks to little routine maintenance will help preserve its beauty and last a lifetime.
Suede, nubuck and aniline leathers have little or no protective surface coating, which means they require special care. A pigmented (protected) leather on the other hand is more robust.

Yes, we can support you with multiple techniques on order to obtain a specific result.
Embossing refers to the creation of an impression of some kind of design, decoration, lettering or pattern on the leather surface. The plates are pressed against the surface under high pressure to leave an imprint. The pressing raises the surfaces adding a new dimension to the object.
Embossing is an elegant process that changes the nature of the material that has been embossed.
Most of our embossing plates are 100 x 130 cm (30 x 50 inches). We have also different sizes, please verify before ordering.
Most of our leather comes from Europe as byproduct of the beef industry. We prefer to use bull hides for our top of the range products.
Most of our leathers have average thickness of 1-1.2mm (inches), but each family nay vary. For more details, please refer to our Technical Sheets included in each product page.
Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important issue in the leather industry. The leather is a byproduct, the production process produce 20% less on CO2 than any other faux leather, the latest improvements are focused on reducing energy and water requirements, making more efficient use of chemicals, largely based on renewable raw materials and which do not use substances with critical toxicological properties. In general the production process uses far fewer chemicals than producing synthetic materials such as vinyl and fabrics. Also, leather is a much more durable product than most most fabrics, reducing replacement costs. Furthermore leather does not require harsh cleaning agents.
It’s important to understand the difference between durability and ageing. Think about a leather jacket: it will last forever, getting charme over the time. This finish that leather develops over time is called “patina”, a soft sheen that develops on the surface of the leather, imparting a character, a personality to the product. It is like an indelible stamp of ownership, a coat of arms – unique for every user.
Patina is the art of graceful ageing, because leather wears the story of its age and environment.
Leather can last about 5 times longer than fabric. As general rule, aniline leather is more durable but ages faster, while semi-aniline and pigmented leather is less durable but ages slower.
