LEATHER & HARDWARE
Every hide, which we use for the collection of Stories Official, is carefully picked and checked with the utmost care before manufacturing.
Most of our leather bags are made of high quality thick cow leather. The leather is a full grain floater. The particular grained texture is a result of an age-old tanning process that takes additional time and extra special treatment.
The suede we use is a calf split, soft trimmed leather with peculiar nap from Italy.
The tannery is located in Tuscany and combines advanced technologies and traditional artisanship.
All the fittings and hardware are specially designed for Stories Official and made from solid brass at a family workshop in Italy.
Making a quality bag is a long, complicated process. It’s the sum of numerous parts and a lot of skilled hands are involved with each bag in some way; Pattern makers, stitching, tanners, producers of zippers, hang tags, lining, hardware and many more.
Not a single bag leaves the factory without having been thoroughly examined with a critical eye and approved by Lotte Zunneberg herself.
That is what Stories Official makes so unique and perfect.
Every hide and skin is unique and has it’s very special character. This is why your leather item can carry with some small marks.
This is completely normal and makes every item even more unique.
