An ultra-delicate hand gives Elegante from Italy the look, feel and sophistication normally found only in soft lambskin leather. Utilizing only the finest European steers hand selected for their suitability, a small family-owned tannery nestled in the foothills of Northern Italy’s mountains has perfected a unique tannage over generations to replicate Elegante’s exceptional softness and gorgeous drape. Averaging 45-50 square feet, Elegante has much larger (and clean) cutting yields. This delightful full-grain semi-aniline is offered in gorgeous refined colors and unique neutrals and is stocked in the U.S. for fast lead times. Give your clients something stunning to ooh and ahh about by specifying Cortina’s Elegante for that unmistakably-Italian and sophisticated style.
