The Badalassi Carlo tannery from Tuscany, Italy, wields over 40 years of experience and tradition in hand-finished vegetable tanned cowhides. The strong personality of this tannery is visible in the vibrant and instantly recognisable leathers that have made waves in the footwear and bagmaking world.
Badalassi Carlo is also a member of the Consorzio Vera Pelle Italiana Conciata Al Vegetable, a consortium of leather tanneries sharing the same high standards of production, and a mark of quality and authenticity.
Pueblo, named as a tribute to the indigenous peoples of south-western USA with strong character, offers a hand feel like no other. Its rough surface belies a supple cowhide, offering both ruggedness and elegance in a single package. The distinct artificial scratch patterns on its surface are achieved by rolling iron balls over the more classic 'Minerva ' article. Easy to maintain, Pueblo quickly patinas into a smooth surface that loses none of its rustic, vintage feel.
