Top quality leather begins with the animals and their environment. We source our raw material exclusively from the Alpine regions, where responsible behaviour towards both livestock and the countryside is an absolute priority. During the tanning process we combine traditional craftmanship techniques and strict controls to produce finished leathers of the highest quality, aesthetically pleasing and free of any harmful substances.

In order to keep track of our skins and their history at all times, each of our leather skins has its own barcode. This means that we can not only determine the origin of the leather fur exactly, but also the type of manufacture and all item-specific information. The value chain can be traced more precisely using the barcode and the barcode number.
