Producing high-quality bags or leather goods on behalf of third parties means scrupulously following a precise process of production. Our craftsmen are specialised in leather working, infollowing all the various phases of production and each one applies their specific skills, strengthened by their own experience.
The first phase sees us engaged in the design and development of models such as the CAD technology; in this way, a design is created which serves as the basis for constructing the prototype and making samples.
Of course, we can also start the production on the basis of already existing styles sent by the client with the use of a plotter, a perfect and irreplaceable tool for printing large format supports.
The most difficult phases of bag production is cutting and calls for a firm and expert hand. Cutting hides can come about by hand and by slicing, but in the case of large productions it is possible to proceed with automatic cutting thanks to the collaboration with an outside partner.
The model is made up of various parts that must be prepared: the leather pieces must first be thinned, that is, made finer so that it becomes the right thickness to be worked. Not all models have hides of the same thickness, so it is important to follow this phase carefully. Then follows the skiving or the process that bevels the edges of the bag before being glued.
The edges of the bags are glued together and trimmed to equal sizes. At this point the model begins to take shape and resemble the final product.
The finish results in our bags becoming products in which the craftsmanship is very evident and characterizes bags made in Tuscany.
The smallest imperfections are checked and eliminated, so that the article is finished in all its details.
The finishing is also carried out with regard to colour, both by hand and by machine depending on the styles being produced and ends with oven drying.
The various parts of the model are then assembled and stitched together, and it is at this point that the skill of the craftsman’s hands really make the difference: one wrong move will spoil all the work done up to now.
The last stages involve assembly of any metal parts, zips, accessories or decorative elements; then the final finishing, quality control and the item is ready to be packed and sent to our clients.
