Fashion comes in waves, does full circles, goes in and out of style but what’s always around in one form or another is leather; leather shoes, leather jackets, leather handbags, even leather hot pants (here’s to hoping the last one never makes a comeback). Whether it was your suede, fringed vest from the 60’s or your extravagant ostrich boots from the 80’s, you name it and at one time or another it has probably been a popular fashion trend.
I’m sure many of you know exactly what I’m talking about. The leather jacket or handbag you’ve held onto over the years, whether you’ve worn it to death or it’s still in great shape, you just can’t manage to part with it. That is truly the beauty of quality leather, Italian leather! After working with leather and living in the city most famous in the world for their leather (Florence, Italy), I can honestly say, without a doubt, Italian leather is the best in the world. You have to think of buying leather as an investment, if your leather good lasts through decades it has certainly done its job. In fact my wardrobe is beginning to take shape, including several handmade leather products that are sure to last a lifetime.
