Verona and Vitoria – naturally tanned
Girsberger's leather collection has been expanded to include two haptically and visually interesting new ecological leathers in several colourways: Verona, a cowhide nubuck leather with a velvety touch, and Vitoria, an olive leaf-tanned nappa leather with a fine wax handle.
Verona is a nubuck leather with a natural grain and a soft feel. Over time the leather takes on an attractive patina and is easy to maintain and refresh using a brush. The raw cowhides come from Europe and are tanned and dyed using environmentally friendly mineral processes. This leather is available in 13 colours.
Vitoria is an untreated nappa leather with a delicate waxy feel. This cover material is available in six colours and is tanned in an environmentally friendly way using olive leaf extract, which produces a more sustainable, ecological leather.
The leaves used for tanning fall when the trees are shaken during the olive harvest and are processed into an extract with an environmental benefit. Minor colour variations and natural marks are possible with this leather and are characteristic of its natural state.
