0770's hand-painted accessories are a testament to our dedication to craftsmanship and artistic expression.
0770 accessories are made from Tuscan vegetable-tanned leather.
This unique and traditional Italian leather is favored for its one-of-a-kind character that develops with years of use. The Italian artisanal tradition of vegetable tanning is a skill that has been passed down through generations for centuries. The process of vegetable tanning is detailed and time-consuming, with hides soaked in natural tannins and monitored for a minimum of 30 days.
The use of natural tannins transforms calfskin hides into a material that is not only beautiful but also durable. No two batches are ever the same.
Regarding the care of vegetable-tanned leather, we recommend keeping it away from water for at least the first month of use. Keeping it dry during the first month allows the leather fibers time to soften and absorb oils, which in turn helps it become naturally resistant to water. Vegetable-tanned leather is also sensitive to heat and is best kept away from extremely hot areas and prolonged periods of direct sunlight.
Your first cleaning can be done after a month of using your item. For a light clean, you can use a damp cloth and gently blot the leather. However, we suggest using an all-natural leather cleaner for the best results. Do not use regular soap to clean vegetable-tanned leather, as long-term use of regular soap can damage it over time due to the chemicals it may contain. Furthermore, apply a leather conditioner after cleaning to help ensure the vegetable-tanned leather remains vibrant in color and soft to the touch. As always, consider your style preference. Less care will create a rugged patina, while cleaning and conditioning will maintain a more polished look.
By following these simple care instructions, you can help ensure that your 0770 handmade accessory made from Tuscan vegetable-tanned leather remains in great condition for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
