The Conceria Tempesti of Ponte a Egola (PI) story dates back to the early 1900s, when Giovanni Tempesti, grandfather of the current owners, the cousins Giovanni and Giovanna Tempesti, began the ancient craft of tanning. Later in the 1930s, his sons Osvaldo and Tullio founded that which would become the Conceria Tempesti in 1946, a company specialized in true egetable tanned leather. Twenty-nine skilled workers are employed in two factories, both located in Ponte a Egola (PI): one
for wet processing and the other for dry processing of leather. The main product is vegetable tanned leather, available as a finished product in a very wide range of finishes and colours, suitable for use in the leather goods and footwear industries.
One of the features that make the Conceria Tempesti one of the most appreciated by insiders is the constantly available variety at its fully stocked warehouse. In addition, there is no production
minimum and there is also an absolute guarantee of fast and efficient service. However, the Conceria Tempesti is an industry excellence even when it comes to the environment. The vegetable tanning, which characterizes the company, is legitimised by a total respect of environmental protection regulations indicated by the “Real Vegetable Tanned Italian Leather Consortium”, of which
Tempesti is a founding member. A further guarantee of quality and professional ethics.
