About the Leather:

       

Full grain Italian Calf-skin leather was used in the production of this bag. It was produced at a tannery in Tuscany using all natural vegetable oils. The leather is slightly thinner than a belting leather, but thicker than your standard luggage leather. It is strong enough for generations of wear and tear, but not too heavy or unwieldy. This is the same leather used by high end Italian luxe brands (all sourced from the same Italian tanneries) -- except this bag is not marked up 20 times!

       

Leather comes in many different forms and styles. Choosing a leather bag that is made with the proper leather for its intended use is very important. We teamed up with Floto, the manufacturer of this bag, to analyze the traits of this leather and hopefully articulate its qualities in a way that is informative and easy to understand.

       

The traits that make this the best leather for this bag are the Vegetable Dye used and European Finish. Vegetable Dye is a natural product that produces a vibrant color and is fade resistant. Unlike inferior leathers that are dyed with chemicals, diesel, or pigeon stool (yes, in some countries they actually use pigeon stool) - vegetable dye brings out the natural leather smell over time and is better for the environment than hybrid chemical dyes. Please see the chart below and the difference between Regular Finish and European Finish.

       

Graphical analysis of Floto leather:

       

       

Regular Finish vs. European Finish:

               

This leather was coated with what is referred to in the industry as a "European Finish". A regular finish is a constant clear coat film that completely seals off the leather. A European Finish consists of microscopic particles that bond together and form the clear coat protection. This creates a leather that is softer to the touch and breaks in better over time, while at the same time offering adequate protection against stains.

       

About the Hardware:

       

This bag was made with lifetime warrantee "antiqued" brass hardware. Any hardware malfunction is completely covered under the lifetime warrantee - no annoying registration required - simply send the bag back to us and it will be fixed.

       

About the Zippers:

       

To date, Floto has never had to fix a broken zipper. Many people ask if the zipper is "metal" - these zippers consist of a metal zip pull on a nylon track. These are much better than a full metal zippers because they do not jam as easily and when they do they will recover after a couple of zip pulls. Metal teeth are prone to jamming and many times loose teeth in a tight jam. Also, over time, metal zip lines deteriorate and the teeth can fall off - when this happens you have to replace the whole zipper. These zippers are made to outlast the leather so you do not have to worry about replacing zippers. The zippers are also covered under the lifetime warrantee giving you peace of mind. Ask any shoe or bag repair guy and they will tell you the same thing - they fix more metal zippers than nylon zippers.

       

About the Production and Marketing:

       

Unlike some of the bigger luxe Brands, this bag was 100% made in Italy. No parts or production were outsourced to China. The philosophy of Floto is to make the best product possible without cutting corners and sell it to the consumer at a fair markup.

       

The Guarantee:

       

This product is guartanteed for its natural life. Natural life is defined as normal use - in other words - if it is run over by a truck and damaged this would not be covered. In a case like this we will work with you to repair it at a reasonable cost.
