Leather Tannery


What is a leather tannery? Nowadays, there is a solid demand for leather goods and accessories.

Besides manufacturing leather goods, Luxury Leather has a tannery in Solofra, a small village in southern Italy. At our leather tannery, we develop and suggest various types of leather, refinishing colours, and products, such as calf leather, vegetable tanning, and vegan leather.

A calf bag is undoubtedly a high-quality product due to its smooth, elegant, and plain grain. The images above illustrate how calf leather maintains a contemporary and chic touch for a luxurious concept.

For those seeking a minimalist style with perfect form, we recommend utilizing our top-grade calfskin for your leather bag collection.

Calf hide is the best choice due to its refined, smooth texture, flat grain, flexibility and durability. It should exhibit deep, contrasting tones with subtle transparency. This kind of skin can be used in many ways. As you can see in our portfolio section, our company often utilizes this material. We use calf leather with different thicknesses ranging from 0.8 to 1.4mm, depending on the type of bag.

Our skilled artisans and expert team offer a wide range of texture options and refinishing services for various types of leather, including Nappa leather and pigmented leather, a great solution for a lining bag. We can also create unique finishes such as washed-aged look, vintage and antique leather, tie-dye effect, dry-milled leather, plonge, naked and aniline leather, suede leather, patent leather, metallic, printed leather, and pearl effect. 

Are you looking for premium quality Italian leather for your bags or handbags? Our expert artisans are here to help you with personalized recommendations that suit your preferences. You can be confident that our suggested materials are around 0.9-1 mm thick, ensuring an exceptional blend of style and durability.


Our leather production process prioritizes sustainability. We use chrome-free leather and further reduce our environmental impact by recycling and purifying our wastewater. In addition, our partners are members of The Leather Working Group, a global sustainable community committed to responsible leather.

Leather has pervaded the story of humanity at all latitudes and in every space in the world, it accompanies the man throughout his centuries-old history.

Luxury Leather is one of the best players in the leather industry. In our Italian tannery, we used to tan various hides, including calf, sheep, lamb, and exotic skins, primarily Nine Crocodile. Looking for Italian leather or any leather for your collection? We are your Made in Italy tannery.

Today, 45% of our production is destined for bags, 30% for footwear and 25% for clothing. We are a fashion tannery. We work for fashion brands, and quality regularity and constancy are our main features.


Leather is a durable and flexible material often used to make clothing, bags, shoes, and other items. There are many different types of leather, but the most common ones are calf, cowhide, lambskin, and sheep, all sources we can provide.

Some leathers are more resistant, while others are more flexible or soft. The most important thing to remember when choosing a type of leather is that it should match your intended use case.

Many people don’t know how to make this decision because they don’t know enough about leather. They go with the first thing they see or what’s trendy. We advise asking our team and artisans for the best solution because leather has many styles, weights, and textures.


The Italian market’s demand for leather goods and accessories has recently increased. Most luxury brands develop different accessories lines based on leather tanning or materials. It is no coincidence that vegetable tanning, an old method of tanning hides, has become a new leather trend.

  • What’s so Special about Vegetable-Tanned Leather?
    1. Leather is 100% sustainable and evergreen.
    2. Polyphenols and tannins fight against bacteria.
    3. Products to tan the skin come from nature, such as chestnut and mimosa trees.
    4. After years of exposure, extraordinarily durable and resistant features can keep the leather transparent.
Leather Tannery: how to make leather.


In recent years, the eco-sustainable theme has become so crucial that most buyers need to develop an ecological collection. By the way, a vegetable calf hide is now a trend. Their leitmotiv is respect for nature and the environment, which is a prerogative issue. Conversely, we even have vegan leather-free plastic, the famous fake leather.


Our factory produces vegan leather bags and garments from cactus, apple, pineapple or other organic materials. We were one of the first companies in Italy to make bags and clothing completely vegan and sustainable.

All you need to know about vegan leather 👉 advantages and disadvantages are also described.

With so many options, it’s worth getting to know the different types of leather and what each one can offer. Luxury Leather has already selected other leather options, such as chrome-tanned, vegetable, or vegan. Thanks to its artisanal and handicraft experience, our team will help you find suitable hide and quality for your leather collection.
