Saffiano leather is one of the natural leather types. The name was adopted due to its wide use within a fashion industry across the globe. It’s made of a very delicately and responsibly processed calf skin. Due to its unique preparation methods, Saffiano leather is completely resistant to scratches, water and loss of color. It’s very user friendly and requires practically no effort to maintain it. The earlier mentioned traits are exactly the ones every leather lover looks for in their leather bag. There is no other leather that would be as resistant to water and scratches as Saffiano. It’s the main reason why such leather bags are in great demand across the world.
Due to its hard surface and imprints, people mistake Saffiano leather for “fake” leather. Some people even refer to such bags as “plastic” bags. One of the main processing steps is stamping. Stamping means that the leather is processed by a press machine, which includes a specific writing pattern. This is the exact trait that distinguishes Saffiano leather from other leather types, which allows its products to stay scratch-free.
The last processing step of Saffiano leather is waxing. It protects the bag from water and dirt while providing a slight gloss. Mario Prada found the above mentioned stamping process – the creator of Prada fashion brand. It was a long lasting legacy of Prada fashion house, until the patent ran out. Now it’s widely used by major fashion houses and smaller craftsmen around the world.
