Learn more about Giorgio

Giorgio

I have been a leather craftsman for the past 10 years: I produce bags, wallets, belts and other leather products. Since I was a child I used to paint, shape clay and create objects with my hands and my fantasy. I have studied languages and traveled for work for several years, but then I met the leather workshop "La Vacchetta Grassa" and my passion has become my job. To our visitors I love telling the ancient tradition of vegetable tanned leather craft (the real leather, what we call CUOIO) and how it's deeply related to the history of Modena.
