Founded in 1896 in Pescia, Tuscany, Guidi & Rosellini Tannery make leather goods the old-fashioned way. Using traditional 'Vachetta' skins, the leather is left uneven in  thickness where most modern hides are shaved for a uniform finish, adding strength where needed to Guidi bags and shoes. Using a natural vegetable tanning process without dyes, oak barks gives the leather a rich color which develops with age and when regularly oiled, remains waterproof throughout its life. The black T25 travel bag in horse leather and Boston holdall in calf, both with a well-worn feel, are finished with heavy duty zips and hardware, essential for this weighty bag, and should see you right for a short trip away.
