Meet the Maker: GESSICA

GESSICA, after whom we named this jacket, is the stylist and operations manager in our leather jacket factory and daughter to Renzo, the factory founder. Gessica grew up in the factory alongside her father, playing as a girl among the bolts of lining. The two generations, father and daughter, work seamlessly together cutting and sewing every piece by hand. Gessica also has an 8-year-old daughter, who plays in the factory just like Gessica did when she was young.

The Craft: Leather tanning

The leather we use comes from family-owned tanneries in Castelfranco di Sotto and Santa Croce Sull’Arno, on the Arno River. We work with several tanneries in the area, each specialized over generations in a particular kind of leather and tanning process, where the owners greet you like an old friend and offer you an espresso (taken standing up, in true Italian style). Wherever possible, we use vegetable-tanned leather, which is a natural tanning process that doesn’t negatively impact the environment. Our leathers come exclusively from European animals that are part of the meat industry, where the leather is a by-product.
