What is Saffiano Leather? Read our guide.

I have seen a few cases made from Saffiano Leather. What is this? 

Here at Made in Tuscany, you will find our collections hiding a few Saffiano leather bags and briefcases, such as The 'Prato', a gorgeous Saffiano leather laptop case, pictured below.

Saffiano makes for very elegant leather bags. Its key feature is how durable it is, with a beautiful finish. 

The finish is a cross-hatch pattern, pressed onto a wax coating making, it water resistant and durable. 

Saffiano Leather first came from Italy's most famous tanneries, and the first design house to use this exclusive leather was none other than Prada. It is now used by brands including Michael Kors, Tory Burch, Coach, and Longchamp.

Is Saffiano Leather Water Resistant? 

Saffiano Leather is one of the 'textured leathers'. As we said above, this is due to the famous pattern being pressed onto a wax coating. This wax coating not only produces a lovely sheen, but protects the leather from water damage. 

Be careful. Despite the associations with Prada and exclusivity, a Saffiano leather finish can be placed on cheaper leathers. 

Here at Made in Tuscany, all of our Tuscany Leather creations are born from the absolute best quality leather, from tanneries used by the top design houses.
