The preparation of a leather product

The realization of a leather product requires different important processes: from cutting to quality control, passing through the preparation and assembly of the components. All stages that underline the mastery of the craftsmen of this sector, pride of our Made in Italy.

The cutting

The first phase is the cutting. The skins are first checked and selected, with the latest generation of electronic machinery, after which the various parts that will comprise the bag, the wallet or another accessory are cut: leather, flocking, linings or different reinforcements.

The splitting

Subsequently, the preparation of the leather product involves the splitting phase, which is achieved by lowering the thickness of the leather according to the type of bag that is being produced, adjusting its stiffness or softness. Thus the edges of the various components of the bag are smoothed.

During the various stages of processing, the skin may undergo modifications, ie it may retreat or lengthen. A margin of about 4 mm is then left at the edge, which increases the perimeter of the dial of the bag.

The re-cutting

After having rechecked and assembled all the parts of the bag, the re-cutting allows to finish the product, according to the exact proportions. This allows to meticulously finish the edges of the bag, using the same colors or deliberately creating color contrasts.

The assembly

This is the final stage and can be carried out on different types of machinery, but some steps – depending on the product and who makes it – can be done by hand, to give value to the craftsmanship of the product. Moreover, depending on the type of object, the operations of brushing and polishing of the leather can be the next steps.

Tips: how to clean your leather backpack

A holiday at the sea, a bike tour or a motorbike excursion: the summer days are more and more dynamic and funny and, if you count to bring your “faithful” leather backpack with you, it is good to know that in case of unexpected stains, there is no need to despair because everything can be solved. Moreover, to keep the leather in good condition, do not forget a little “maintenance”, which means to hydrate it periodically.

 

Three tips

 

Here are three practical tips to clean your backpack or your leather bag.

  1. Do not use water, in order to avoid worsening the situation. For instance, on the leather, we could create halos that are difficult to remove.
  2. Much depends on the type of stain: if it is a slight trace of dirt, you can take a cotton swab or a white rag soaked with neutral detergent milk (the one you use to remove make-up on your face).
  3. With the cotton swab gently rub the stain and let the backpack dry, avoiding direct sun, if possible.

 

Ordinary maintenance

How to do the “ordinary maintenance” of your leather backpack?

Sometimes the leather needs to be hydrated – especially in the Summer, when it is more exposed to the sun, heat and wind – just like the skin of our body, you can use a fairly solid moisturizer, not overly greasy.

For polishing, you can use an old grandma’s remedy: rub a pair of nylon stockings to make the backpack shinier and ready for the whole Summer.

The beauties of the San Lorenzo market

It is difficult to think of describing the many beauties of the San Lorenzo market in an article of a few lines but we try, because this exhibition space deserves at least one visit, if you are in Florence, and is one of the most particular and typical places where you can meet flavors and genuinely Tuscan perfumes, shopping and having an exceptional setting for your last selfie!

 

The two sections of the market

 

The San Lorenzo Market is exactly divided into two parts: one inside, known as the Central Market and dedicated mainly to food, shops, restaurants and fast food, and the other outdoor section, organized around to the Central Market building, a glass and cast-iron structure built towards the end of the 19th century by Giuseppe Mengoni, the architect of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan.

 

A taste experience

 

Fruits and vegetables, bread and pastry, chocolate and honey, fresh fish, fried meatballs, meat and sausages, cheese, pizza and fresh pasta, wine shop, lampredotto, sorbets and ice creams … All the activities of the Central Market are conducted by artisanal traders that have in common the passion for their profession. Going from here is a real dip in tradition, in good Tuscan and Italian cuisine, with its quality ingredients, a place for gourmets who want to experience a unique, tasteful experience.

It can be a good idea, between a museum and a church, to put on your march the visit to the San Lorenzo Market, perhaps at lunchtime or even for dinner, so as to taste the delicacies of Tuscan cuisine (they are about 500 seats available inside) and let yourself be tempted by the various tastes.

 

The paradise of the skin

 

Outside, among the streets that wind around the covered market, you can indulge in admiring leather objects, mostly ceramic artifacts and other local products, clothes, scarves, small ornaments, stationery objects, magnets and all kinds of cadeau to take home as a souvenir of your tour in Florence. But do not forget that at the San Lorenzo Market you can find many leather goods to complete your favorite look: bags, clutch bags, belts, wallets, jackets and jackets. The local craftsmanship here is really on display, it does not seem a gamble to call it “the leather’s paradise”.

 

You just have to choose

 

Allow us a tip: if you are willing to make serious purchases, first make a list of what you are looking for, if you need to give gifts, and allow yourself enough time to take a look at the various stalls before deciding what to buy, and plan a “extra budget” for a last deal, just for you!

There are so many options to choose from and without spending too much money, you will certainly find very tasty souvenirs for you and your friends. This part of the San Lorenzo Market is open every day, from Tuesday to Saturday. Enjoy your visit!
