PURA® is Zanellato leather par excellence; the result of lengthy research and experimentation, carried out with constancy and determination by Franco Zanellato. Traditional tanning techniques use heavy metals with devastating consequences on the environment and require severe security rules for the safety of workers. PURA® Zanellato is the revolutionary 1.0 leather, obtained using an exclusive metal free tanning process. Zanellato products are created to be timeless, treasured and passed down over generations and therefore must be in perfect harmony with man and the environment. PURA is the result of an important research project strongly supported by Franco Zanellato, who, together with a team of reputable expert collaborators, achieved extraordinary results.
