Luxurious Italian leather

A luxury and eco-friendly option

We use full grain calf leather for all our Italian leather products. This type of leather is taken from the upper most layer of the hide, making it extremely durable and long-lasting, adding character with every wear. The raw hide is turned into ASALI leather using a process called tanning, using natural tannins found in trees and plants. We work only with Silver rated tanneries belonging to the Leather Working Group, ensuring a more environmentally and customer friendly product.

ASALI products are made using a combination of both hand and machine-based techniques, making every item completely unique. The nature of the leather means the finish will be natural, colourations may vary and small marks created during its lifetime are normal. You can be sure that your piece is truly one of a kind.

Stromboli leather

Supple and thick this vegetable tanned leather is our most popular. Rotation in a milling drum during the tanning process brings out more of its natural texture and softens the leather. This leather is very durable and will gain an exquisite patina over time.

We use this leather to make our tanned weekend bags, travel bags, laptop sleeves, wash bags, cardholders and luggage tags

Vachetta Leather

This leather is soft and smooth to touch, colour variations are less and the leather lends itself to wallets and pencil cases where stretch and movement are common place. Personalisation works beautifully here. Enjoy in red, navy and black.

Soft Grain Leather

Soft and strong this leather is perfect for when you want to add a splash of colour to your day. Our gorgeous green wash bag and Travel & Stripe range show off the vibrancy that can be achieved alongside a strong and malleable piece.

Leather Care

If your bag gets a little wet we recommend a dab with a clean cloth and splash of patience. The water marks will fade over time

If your bag has a mishap and merges with some oil we recommend a good helping of talcum powder and time. The oil will be absorbed and fade.

If your zip is stiff or you want to buff the leather for any reason we recommend a Renapur Leather Balsam, it smells amazing and will moisturise, protect and nourish your leather.
