And yet, unlike the painter who sees a canvas blank and void of history, a leather artisan sees a history, a story to be told. Looking at the beauty and “imperfections” of the piece in front of him, he sees the animal’s journey – the scars, notches, creases and lines that occur through years of living in the wild. This journey is unique and genuine; it cannot be invented or recreated.As the craftsman studies and seeks to understand the piece, a whirlwind of inspiration unfolds before his minds eye, creating one-of-a-kind masterpieces.
Alone in this tucked away studio,
The craftsman seeks to use his passion of artistry to bring the animal’s story to life. Here, passion intermingles with knowledge, awareness and an Italian tradition deep-rooted in history.
The result is an exquisite display of artwork that takes shape in unique leather creations – each with its own story, each with its own passion.
