In the heart of Italy lies the inspiration for one of Cortina’s best-selling performance leathers—the city of Florence. The warm and familiar colors and gentle distressing of Cortina’s Florence collection evoke the rich tapestry that defines a magical city: cobbled streets, historic facades, and enduring craftsmanship. Made in the U.S. with meticulous attention to detail, Cortina’s Florence collection is a symbol of this craftsmanship. In addition to its timeless beauty, the practicality of Florence makes it stand out. Unlike similar aniline distressed leathers, we offer our Florence collection at an attainable price-point, with an IMO rating, and protected with our Crypton® finish built in for excellent cleanability and sustainability. With a waxy, firm hand, we designed Florence as a performance leather that celebrates some of the natural markings only found with genuine leather. Like its namesake, Florence will develop a time-tested story of casual luxury with a slowly evolving patina.

Note: Passes IMO, FTP 2010 Code.
