LEATHER CRAFTSMANSHIP

Explore the timeless craftsmanship behind each leather creation

OUR PROCESS

Our bags are crafted with care, blending Italian accessories with the expertise of artisans in Shenzhen. Each piece bears the mark of its maker, ensuring its uniqueness and charm.

After exploring workshops in five countries across Asia and Europe, we chose our crafting location thoughtfully.Our La Mansio bag is available in three distinct models, crafted from premium full-grain and Saffiano leather. We exclusively utilize hides sourced as by-products of the meat and dairy industry, repurposing them into durable, timeless pieces.

SAFFIANO LEATHER

Saffiano leather, created by Mario Prada, is distinguished by a diagonal and cross-hatch pattern on full grain leather, making it durable and ideal for products like bags.

Leading fashion brands adopted it for its scratch-resistant, water-repellent properties and easy maintenance, ensuring long-lasting appearance.

LEATHER AND CANVAS

The ‘Toscana Olive’ bag is a variant of the La Mansio bags, made from water-repellant canvas fabric and complemented by approximately 5% Duotone Coffee Saffiano leather, making it a lighter version of the Saffiano bags.

HERITAGE LEATHER

Our Heritage leather has a light pigmented coating that maintains the hide's natural features.

Through careful selection, only the finest hides undergo this light tanning, preserving their breathability, water absorption, and unique markings.

Each Heritage Brown La Mansio bag is unique, displaying variations in shade, texture, and distinctive hide characteristics.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Ensure the longevity of your La Mansio with the proper care

SAFFIANO LEATHER CARE

To clean your bag we recommend using a damp, cold cloth and mild soap. Gently wipe away excess dirt or residue and air dry.

When you are not using it, make sure to store your bag in its original dust bag, away from moisture and variations of heat or cold.

HERITAGE LEATHER CARE

This type of leather can be treated with Ecco Wax or conditioner, and over time it captures a beautiful patina. The Heritage leather can be treated with Ecco wax in order to make the scratches much less visible.
This way, the area treated with wax slowly darkens and captures a unique patina, specific to the Heritage leather.
