Instead of using the chrome dyeing process, the Portegna leather is dyed with a unique blend of natural dyes and colours from flowers and tree bark. The leather is treated with olive oil to nourish, soften and make it more robust.
Our process has two benefits over chrome dyeing, it results in a natural looking leather that develops a unique "patina" over time. It improves with use and over time and is certainly more sensitive to the environment.
