Yes, that's what you do: false myths about the cost of leather accessories
When you approach a so-called non-"essential" product, such as a fashion accessory or a piece of furniture, usually the variables that are taken into consideration are given by the relationship between the quality of the product and its purchase price.
Speaking of leather, ours corebusiness, we often hear from buyers, why, Why, the cost of a product appears significantly higher than what is defined, with varying degrees of approximation, "average price".
The answer is simple, but not at all obvious: it concerns first of all the extreme attention that professionals like us, devote to the materials to be used. In other words, many types of leather can be found on the market, their price varies according to treatments, import-export, special processes, special colors.
The work of stylistic research, scouting, continuous updating on trends, new materials and processes, is then a second parameter that differentiates the quality of the final product: large retailers can "afford" to create continuous garments, at low prices, which they find a recycling even with the passing of the collections, but the artisan entrepreneurship does not: it must focus on the continuous evolution of itself, carefully calibrating each step.

It is also just a detail, a seam, a touch soft that enriches the garment / accessory in a unique way, making it so precious precisely because it is the result of meticulous workmanship and with solid foundations.
Made-in-Italy, a choice that we pursue with courage and determination because it is inherent in our corporate genetic code, is not based on overproduction formulas, large numbers and mass-produced items, but often works on small quantities, prefers smaller collections but frequent.
This, for those who draw and then produce, is a cost.
And so ...
If you think carefully about the above, or rather the delicate mechanism behind a product in the window, the set of choices (sometimes read: risks) that a manufacturing company must make driven more than anything else by passion and motivation for your job, you will easily come to understand how our products cannot be defined as over-budget, but rather testify to the continuous search for balance between novelty, fashion, design, quality of raw materials and authentic artisan tradition
If this isn't worth it ....
