Vegetable Tanned Leather
Ghisò uses a selection of vegetable tanned full-grain leather using only the finest quality natural hides. Full-grain leather has a character all its own, often displaying natural markings that lend beauty and refinement to the patina of this material. Possible marks and scratches are to be seen as a natural part of the leather/product and cannot be regarded as a fault.
Ghisò is deliberately using leather, which has been through as few chemical processes as possible. Due to the natural dying process of the leather, it may vary in colour and texture, which is to be seen as a natural part of the products history.
Over time, sunlight, oils and other factors will burnish the Ghisò bag, rendering it an individual patina that only adds to its beauty. With proper care and maintenance, a Ghisò bag will provide you with years of vibrant and durable performance. The best way to care for the full-grain leather and your Ghisò product is simply to use it, but always do so with care. Full-grain leather is a sturdy and hard-wearing natural material that can last for many years but it does have limits. Therefore avoid extreme temperatures, overly harsh use and direct contact with wet and moist surfaces.
Ghisò recommends treating full-grain leather with leather conditioner when necessary. Leather conditioner provides moisture to keep the leather supple and ensure that it does not dry out, fade or crack. Treatment with leather conditioner will also impart a richer lustre and deeper colour to full-grain leather while keeping it free of impurities.
The different fabrics used in our collections are developed by Attilio Imperiali, and are carefully selected for their technical and aesthetical capabilities. All Ghisò fabrics feature a water-repellent coating that makes the material resistant to water. However, only our Olona based articles can be considered 100% waterproof. The finish makes Ghisò bags easy to clean – just wipe with a clean, damp cloth.
