Born in a rural Italian town, Claudio always had a passion for motorcycle, vintage cars and leather. "I remember, I used to visit local leather artisan shops just so I could admire the artistry involved into to making leather goods, and have a taste of that ancient traditional craft, now beginning to lose it self in this technology era".In the late teens, the passion for travel with his bike brought Claudio to Northern Ireland, where he started to practice leather technique, like staining, carving and hand stitching.
Over a decade now Claudio still exploring for a new technique.
" leather craft is a never endless learning artistry, always achieve the perfection, and never stop learning are a must!".
Claudio personally select the leather from the tannery, mostly all vegetable tanned leather (organic Leather in plain language).
This kind of leather tanning process is the oldest and it consists on bathing the leather in pits containing a "tea" of mainly tree bark and leaf, this after several months, cause a structural change in the fibers and turns it into a useful product, that will last in time, gaining a patina, antique look.the leather is hand cut, stained, carved and on customer request either hand stitch or machine stitch.
