Why Is Bosca Worth The Price?
Every Bosca product is a work of art, handcrafted with over 100 years of experience. Our stubborn dedication to the
quality of our leather shows in every product we sell.
We use the highest quality leather
in the world.
Only about 1% of the world's leather supply meets our standards.
We source our hides from small free-range farms in Europe. Hides with blemishes and scars need to be colored with heavy
pigments - covering the natural look and feel of the leather - so we select only the best hides to send to our tannery
in Italy. After the tanning process, we inspect the hides for a second time. Color is then applied by hand rubbing
translucent dyes into the leather - for this reason we often refer our to leather as hand-stained. We inspect again,
looking for flaws and imperfections, but also at the character and coloring of the hide to makesure each one is ideal.
We use highly skilled tanning techniques.
All leather goes through one of several types of tanning process. We use the method of vegetable tanning as opposed to
"chrome" and "synthetic" tanning processes.
Both processes can leave harmful chemical residuals in the leather. Vegetable tanning uses tannic acids found in plants
and some fruits, giving the finished hide a more natural look. We choose vegetable tanning because the leather is
know for it's durability and strength. In addition, Veg-tanned leather is an eco-friendly sustainable material and
is free of harmful residuals. Vegetable tanning is an Old World skill that blends artistry and precision; thus it
cannot be learned overnight. Our tanning partners have three generations of artists, each passing down family recipes
only they know.
The result is a product that
wears in, not out.
The real value of a Bosca product shows itself over time. Rather than looking worn and tired it develops a warm, pleasing
patina. We regularly see products from customers that are over 20 years old and are even more beautiful than the day
we made them.
We aren't making products that will break down and need to be replaced every two years - we want you to have it for
decades. Our products undergo extensive scrutiny. Custom hardware, fabrics, and fittings are chosen to ensure your
Bosca piece will hold up to daily use. We have every aspect of production dialed in so precisely that wecontrol the
number of stitches in each inch of stitching.
