"Why handmade in Itlay?"


October 10th, 2019


When it comes to leather, no country in the world does it better than Italy. One of the main reasons why Italian leather is so highly regarded is because of its quality. A great deal of craftsmanship is put into the creation of Italian leather—from the hides they use to the natural vegetable and plant-based extracts used in manufacturing. Italian leather also values a slower, detailed process, steering clear of mass-production methods. Because of this, Italian leather is also more durable and timeless than other leathers. 


At Opus Mind, we value long-lasting, quality products, made with thought and care. That’s why we chose to manufacture our products in Italy. Of course, our leather is all upcycled—but it’s the handle and care that goes into the creation of our products in Italy that we love so much.

Our products come to life in a family-owned and operated factory in Florence, Italy that has been passed down 3 generations. The skills they’ve acquired throughout that time can be seen in the details of our Opus Mind product.
