Officina del Poggio goods are made with locally-sourced high-quality materials.
Our core collection consists of durable and resistant Italian vegetable tanned vacchetta leather from Tuscany. Vegetable tanned leather is a classic leather with a natural finish that will slowly darken over time, creating a beautiful patina.
Vegetable tanning is a traditional process, passed down generations over the last centuries, mixing antique recipes and state-of-the-art technology. The transformation from raw hides into the final skins takes place in wooden drums, using unique methods based on the use of natural tannins extracted from trees, with full respect for man and the environment.
Our bags are meant to be loved and worn on your daily adventures. However, we advise to not put your bag in close contact with dark colored jeans or other materials which could transfer their colors, and exposure to water can create spots on the vacchetta trim, which will gently fade over time.
For general maintenance and care, the best option is to take your bag to a trusted leather goods repair shop or use commercial products made specifically for leather goods.
Our goods undergo strict quality control processes. Any small flaws of the leather are due to the handicraft tanning processes. Small inequalities are therefore not to be considered as defects but as unique distinctive elements that accentuate the personal character of each piece.
We proudly offer a guarantee that every Officina del Poggio purchase meets our high standards of quality. This guarantee is a two-year repair policy for the structural function of our bags under normal wear and tear and anything that may be the result of any manufacturing defects. Cosmetic issues are not covered under our repair policy.
