It is precisely the time we dedicate to details that makes our products unique. The watch straps of your Nazareno Rossetti are manufactured with a special technique handed down from generation to generation: vegetable tanning.
Vegetable tanning is a craft leather production process, which skillful tanners have been handing down from father to son for more than two hundred years. Ancient recipes, once jealously preserved by their owners, are combined with technological innovation. Vegetable-tanned leather is an expression of the art, knowledge, skill, and expertise needed to craft them.
Through an environmentally friendly process that takes place in wooden drums, raw hides are turned into a durable and precious material. It is an extraordinary process based on the use of natural tannins, modern technologies, and cutting-edge machines, but above all else, it relies on the passage of time.
Among the various tanning methods, vegetable tanning is the most classical, traditional recognizable, natural, and eco-friendly. It is the only technique that can give peculiar features to the leather. Vegetable Tanning merges look and comfort, fashion and tradition, and the uniqueness and functionality of a product.
Vegetable tanning is environmentally friendly. All products crafted with this technique can be recycled. This type of tanning is an old traditional craft. Most tanneries employ skilled artisans who work on the leather.
Thanks to natural tannins, vegetable-tanned products are one-of-a-kind, unique, and inimitable. They do not thwart time but persistently change for the better, absorbing the traces of our experience.
Vegetable-tanned leather features natural colours and its warm shades tend to resurface with use.
Leather treated through this process has a higher added value which embellishes the watch straps, making it superior to chrome-tanned leather watch straps.
