Firstly, the Genuine Italian Vegetable-Tanned Leather Consortium regulates, preserves and guarantees the production of vegetable tanned leather made in Tuscany. There institution is an guarantee for quality. Secondly, to identify and guarantee the quality, the Consortium created a label endowed with a product traceability system. So therefore, all of The Weekenders have this label and therefore are traceable via the system.

Natural tannins; a valid alternative to chemicals
Tannins are uses for the tanning of our natural vegetable tanned leather bag. Above all, tannin is a substance present inside plants, which protects them from the attack of mold, bacteria, fungi and parasites. Naturally present in fruits and vegetables, tannin has always been part of our diet. For thousands of years they have been produced from plants. Moreover, it can be used effectively in various processes. From the production of food products to cosmetics, from the dyeing of fabrics to the vegetable tanning of leather. Thanks to its unique characteristics, tannin is considered a valid alternative to chemicals. In conclusion, respecting human health and the environment is very important and natural tannins take care of this. The word “tannin” comes from the verb “to tan”, related to leather manufacturing process. Source: www.tannins.org
