What is “lavato”?

“Lavato” is the inverse process of dyeing leather. Usually a leather goods manufacturer uses already dyed leather, but in this case we buy crust vegetable tanned leather for our bags. When we finish to assemble the bags we put them into a drum and here the dyeing process starts. After this step and after the “ingrasso” (same effect of the cream on our skin) the bags are ready to be dryed. The result is a vintage bag made of italian vegetable tanned leather.
