Quality Trademark

TUSCAN VEGETABLE

TANNED LEATHER

The  trademark and logo Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana (Tuscan Vegetable-Tanned Leather), was envisioned by Oliviero Toscani to emphasize the Tuscan origin of leather.

This simple logo tells the story of our product: leather, vegetable-tanning extracts and the skilful hands of the Tuscan master tanners, true to the  artisan traditions of this special place.

To create

requires both time and skill.

The disciplinary

The Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium regulates, preserves and guarantees the production of vegetable-tanned leather made in Tuscany through its quality trademark: Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana //Tuscan Vegetable-Tanned Leather.

The use of this quality trademark is bound to the observance of the Technical Production Regulations that all member tanneries are committed to respect.

The Disciplinary contains a precise definition of “vegetable-tanned leather”, establishes that the   production process in its qualifying phases is carried out entirely in the Tuscan territory and provides that strict physical and chemical reference parameters are observed for the leather to be marked Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana //“Tuscan Vegetable-Tanned Leather”.

PELLE CONCIATA AL VEGETALE IN TOSCANA IS THE SYMBOL THAT GUARANTEES THIS LEATHER, AN ICON OF EXCELLENCE,  IS MADE TO THE EXACTING STANDARDS OF THE CONSORZIO.

The Consortium has created a guarantee  certificate equipped with a supply chain traceability system that certifies the quality and origin of the product.

The Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium is the exclusive owner of the registered trademark “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana”. Only the Consortium can allow customers of its member tanneries to use it by signing a contract of license which entitles them to attach the label “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana” to their finished product.

It is the possibility of choice

that makes us profoundly human.
