For men and women, this often overlooked accessory should not be an afterthought; it should say something about the wearer. Our chic belt says you are all about the details.
Unlike most leathers today, vachetta is tanned by Tuscan artisans using natural processes dating back to ancient Rome, when the hides were prized for making belts and sandals (arguably among the best accessories of yore).
Just as they did then, the skins today acquire their unique qualities from natural dyes and a tanning process that respects the environment as much as the hides. The skins are placed in large wooden barrels where they steep for days in a nontoxic brew of animal fats, rind from the chestnut tree, and mimosa extracts. They're then hung from the ceiling to dry naturally.
For some, it's just a belt. For others, it's a statement with a thousand year history, a mark of personal pride, a symbol of taste.
