The Leather

  • The Alex is hand-made by artisans in the Spanish town of Alicante.
  • Made using only the finest full-grain Spanish leather, the Alex owes its smooth and supple character to the wide open fields of Spain which produce hides in full bloom without marks from barbed wire or insect bites.
  • Instead of employing the cheap and damaging chrome tanning process, La Portegna’s leather is vegetable tanned with a unique blend of natural tannins and colour compounds from Spanish flowers and tree bark. The leather is then treated with Spanish olive oil to nourish it, soften it and make it more robust.
  • This all-natural process has two benefits versus chrome tanning - it results in beautiful looking leather that develops a unique ‘patina’ over time - literally getting better with age, and it’s infinitely kinder to the environment.
  • Because of this unique tanning process, your option to personalise most of products with a monogram, and our policy not to make leather for anyone else, your La Portegna product is as near to unique as you can possibly get.
