La Portegna works with natural materials such as vegetable leather, which are more ecological.
Vegetable leather unlike chrome leather (chemically treated), is treated with vegetable tree tannin and olive oil in a certified EU ecologically friendly process. The great thing about vegetable leather is the genuine and lush appearance, and best of all, it ages gracefully.
All products are hand made. They are not done in “industrial factories or workshops” and that is why the products have a more intimate and natural touch, not the impersonal and mechanical feel of the big producers.
