Full Custom Process
When working with a handcrafted good, the Foglizzo Full Custom program is a creative playground for designers. Here, one can blend traditional with contemporary, experiment with size, number, colour and leather type.
Since 1921, Foglizzo Leather has honed our technical skills alongside the ability to understand and meet our clients’ most sophisticated requirements. Because of this history, an ingrained capability for engineering bespoke leather hides that surpass expectations is at the very heart of Foglizzo.
Our design process is one-of-a-kind, completely tailored to express our clients’ unique design styles.
First, we listen to the client’s creative vision, as well as identify specific needs, technical requirements and expectations to develop a comprehensive project brief.
Inspiration & Research
Our approach to a new project depends entirely on the client’s project, but research is always an essential component of the design process. We often assemble a moodboard to effectively focus efforts and to communicate our concept.
Once the concept is decided, multiple solutions are discussed and developed in collaboration with the client through media such as hand sketches and computer models. From these, the optimal solution is selected for testing.
Test & Development
Test samples are produced and submitted to the client for feedback, which is absolutely critical at this stage. Through constant collaboration, we refine, test and improve until the product is perfect. Rigorous testing is conducted on each iteration to verify adherence to the project brief’s requirements.
The final product
Once a sample has been approved, it enters the first production phase of many. Strict checks and controls at each step ensure the best quality all the way through. Special requests, while welcomed, may require longer production time.
Catalogue & Shipment or Installation
After every custom project, a piece of the new leather is archived into what has become an essential reference database for future projects.
When it’s time to package and ship, Foglizzo’s deep understanding of the unique demands of quality leather transport ensures the hide arrives in perfect condition. If needed, an installation support service is available.
As a natural product, leather requires regular maintenance and cleaning. Foglizzo provides premier leather care products and information.
