SADDLE LEATHER. Italian vegetable-tanned leather. The dyeing process is based on the use of natural tannins and on a complete absence of chrome, coveying that characteristic genuine look and soft consistency which only natural leather without synthetic covering reveals.
Because saddle leather is thick and particularly sturdy, it needs no reinforcement and makes it possible to create objects entirely in leather. With RABITTI 1969, GIOBAGNARA is expanding its offer, both by revisiting the inhouse archives and creating new collections.
In 2015, GIOBAGNARA acquired the famous Italian saddle leather specialist
RABITTI. Rudi Rabitti, who launched the company in Milan in 1969, was a pioneer:
his was the first brand to offer a wide array of home accessories in this type of leather.
In 2017 Giorgio Bagnara entrusted Stéphane Parmentier with the artistic direction of RABITTI 1969. Enamored of the beauty and the quality of the leathers used, not to mention the meticulous attention to detail evident in each piece, he designed the new ATARI furniture collection.
