Q. What is eco-friendly leather?
Eco-friendly leather that is tanned without the use of any harmful chemicals. Since vegetable tanning is a more natural process, it is much more eco-friendly as compared to the full chrome leather which produces toxins in its tanning process.
Q. How is eco-leather better than vegan leather?
Artificial/vegan leather is actually the opposite of being environmentally friendly as it is made using plastic materials. The manufacture and disposal of PVC-based synthetics let out hazardous dioxins, which can cause developmental and reproductive issues and even cancer. When PVC ends up in a landfill it does not decompose like genuine leather and can release dangerous chemicals into the water and soil.
Further, a real, good quality leather can last decades, whereas faux leather does not age well, and starts cracking after a few years.
Another important factor to consider is the environmental impact of replacing a fake leather product multiple times is arguably more damaging than the purchase of one real leather item, that lasts for many years.
Q. What is upcycled leather?
Upcycled leathers used in making Silviano products are the highest quality of leftover stock leathers that are handpicked from our partner factories around the world to develop limited edition ranges. These leathers would have otherwise been discarded and ended up in landfills.
Q. Where do we source our leather from?
Our leathers are carefully sourced from tanneries based around India. All our leathers and tanneries are LWG certified. We use the highest quality of vegetable-tanned or upcycled leathers to make our Silviano products.
Q. Do we source our leather sustainably?
We work with leathers that are a by-product of the food industry rather than bred for stock leather. We also ensure that all industrial waste generated from the production of such leather is recycled and repurposed.
Q. What is Tamponata?
Over the years leather absorbs the traces of its surroundings and the things it comes in contact with - the natural oils of your body, sunlight, water, dirt, dust, heat. Over time, it develops a natural patina. A naturally developed patina is the soft sheen that develops on the surface of the leather, imparting a character to the product. A patina on the leather is like the hallmark of a high-quality leather good. The Tamponata effect is like the natural Patina, given to the leather at the start.
Tamponata is a type of hand-finishing done on leather, where the color is applied with a soft pressure, layer upon layer, to give the leather a shaded effect. The color is dark along the edges and lighter on the interior. The varying degree of darkness and lightness gives the leather beautiful tones and a great depth.
It’s a highly skilled traditional Italian technique that gives the leather a special character and unique finish. We use a vegetable-tanned cowhide as a base for the Silviano Sleeve. Each and every piece of the product is hand painted separately. This natural effect gives the leather a rich and luxurious look, that looks more beautiful with age.
