Why Vachetta leather? Unlike other types of leather, Vachetta becomes even more valuable over time, making it a supreme choice for designers and investment pieces. Beginning as a lighter tan, it slowly develops a deep honey “patina” as you use it. No two bags are alike, making yours a one-of-a-kind expression that you’ll love to use for years to come.
How to wear
Vachetta: Premium Leather
Vachetta leather is a full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather made from cow hide that primarily comes from Italy.
Prioritized by luxury brands and designers, its high fat content gives Vachetta an incredible, buttery soft touch that
elevates everything from luggage to bags to shoes.
While it can be dyed, the beauty of Vachetta is most clearly seen in its raw state. Beginning as a pale beige, Vachetta
leather develops a unique patina over time when exposed to the elements, eventually becoming a
deep honeyed tan that’s subsequently more valuable and distinctive of its owner.
No two Vachetta bags will be ever the same, making one a bespoke, long-lasting product worthy of passing
down for generations to come.
Whether as a gift for a loved one or for yourself, a Vachetta leather piece denotes that extra level
of thoughtfulness in a class all its own.
We work exclusively with Italian and French luxury artisans whose heritage and existence are threatened. Our production is based on a made-to-order, no-waste policy and on real, warm relationships.
