    Established in 1973 in San Miniato, Tuscany, Walpier Tannery has been in business for three generations and has a long tradition of making leather products based on vegetable tanning process.

    The tannery handles 100% hair cow leathers imported from France and is a member of Vera Pelle, Italy’s association of vegetable-based leather tanners.

    The traditional vegetable tanning technology of Tuscany Belly has been handed down father to son for centuries in the Tuscany region. The tanning process usually takes 40 days by putting raw leather with natural tannin extracted from a variety of trees in a drum. This is a processing method only practiced by Italian tanners in the world.
