Luxury’s sustainable leathers
Reptilis positions itself as a player of reference in the world of reptile skin and Luxury production. Its range of leathers is very vast: python (Diamond, Molurus and Curtus), Ayer, Karung, Hardwicke, Elaphe, lizard, caiman, Nile crocodile, shark and ostrich. The DNA of Reptilis is made up of its expertise in hand painting and hand dabbing even if a large part of its production is focused on washed, laminated, partially laminated and plotted articles. A soft and full-bodied touch with natural but also multicolour and iridescent aspects are characteristics that identify the typical product.
Excellence and quality for Luxury brands, which nowadays do not forego environmental concerns where, even in this context, Reptilis is at the forefront. The owners talk to us about their work: «Our skins are tanned in-house in order to have greater control of the chemicals and non-chemicals used and, in this regard, we have developed a veritable continuous research of a sustainable tannery through a project called: Reptilis Eco Path, our commitment to sustainable tanning». Reptilis Eco Path develops on the basis of inventory and characterization of chemical products, their identification and substitution of non-compliant products in compliance with the parameters of environmental protection in view of 2020.
In addition, the company has recently obtained an important ICEC certification with a percentage of 100/100: Reptilis is in fact the first Italian tannery certified with the ICEC_TS_SC_410 product brand designation of origin and traceability for the articles in Molurus Python for footwear, leather goods and clothing. Care for the environment but also evolution thanks to the in-house research and development laboratory capable of meeting client needs already during their visits to the tannery. Moreover, Reptilis has a permanent showroom at its headquarters where they display their latest advances and collections seen at the trade fair, as well as a historical archive to inspire ideas and indications. In the wake of this spirit, Reptilis is able to develop articles customized for each client and to work with sample articles and colours.
