Instead of using the chrome dyeing process, Portegna leather is dyed using a unique blend of natural dyes and colors sourced from flowers and tree bark. The leather is treated with olive oil to nourish it, soften it 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 its use and the passage of time and is undoubtedly more sensitive to the environment.
