Florentine Leather Story


First, touch the leather. It’s soft and smooth — and pleasant to smell, like the traditional Florentine workshop you are in. Your host is a master leather craftsman. He will tell you how the leather is treated, and show you his tools, and you will see the passion for his craft in his eyes.

Sip a selection of liquors or wines while you watch and learn. In this private workshop, you will discover the history of leather in Tuscany, and how Florence became a capital of leatherwork. You will witness and practice centuries-old techniques that create, out of shapeless pieces of leather, elegant objects that will last a lifetime.

Besides the workshop experience itself, you can take away something more: a pair of unique Florentine leather shoes, tailor-made for you.
