ALDONA values the traditions of fine craftsmanship. We focus on these traditions and combine them with the latest advances in leather-making technology.
For example, traditional tanning processes use chromium. However, the disposal of waste chromium and leather scrap is an environmental concern, as well as a danger to human health. What’s more, a sizable number of people are allergic
to the chrome in leather; this is why ALDONA uses only chrome-free tanning technology. Chrome-free leather is safe and environmentally friendly—and it has the same performance properties as traditional leather.
We use minimally treated vegetable tanned top grain cowhide leather which is known for its strength and suppleness. Since it is vegetable tanned, it ages beautifully and develops a patina with time and takes on a look totally unique to your case.
