Tony Perotti founded his leather goods business in 1972 after a desire to share his luxury travel experiences with his customers. Since then his goal has been to create fashionable and functional leather pieces that are handcrafted to the highest possible quality. Even now, when the day-to-day running of the business has been passed down to his children, the Italian designer still takes an active role in upholding his ideal of superior quality and functionality. To guarantee the highest standards of materials, workmanship and design, no item leaves the company’s Italian factory without founder, Perotti’s personal seal of approval.
Environmental and social responsibility
Both environmental and social responsibility are key concerns at Tony Perotti leather. As a result of founder, Perotti’s lifelong respect for the environment, the brand is constantly seeking out new, more ecologically-friendly tanning methods that are safer for both humans and the natural environment. Indeed, several of the brand’s main lines are produced entirely using eco-friendly Italian leather, which is perfect for those who like to do their bit for the environment.
The brand also focuses on supporting the local communities in their native region of Italy. Tony Perotti works with the Vera Pelle tanneries who are renowned for their skills in traditional vegetable-tanning. The esteemed Vera Pelle tanneries use methods and techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation and best preserve the raw beauty of the hides without any detriment to the natural environment.
During the tanning process, the untreated leather is rotated in large wooden drums, where it is softened and enriched with natural treatments from plant extracts and olive oils. Much the same as fingerprints, no grains have repeatable characteristics, meaning that each Tony Perotti piece is unique and special. This method of vegetable-tanning by hand helps to bring the natural markings to the surface, revealing the traces of life with the leather’s veins, wrinkles, and scratches.
