Leather - a living material
Founded in 1956, Cuoificio Bisonte has become part of a prestigious tradition: rawhide from the best bovine skins and a slow tanning process in vats of pure chestnut extract, enable this company to obtain an absolute genuine quality leather that has become the choice of many high-end Italian and foreign footwear manufacturers.
In the 1990s, the now world renowned company underwent an expansion, with the creation of an internal division known as “Cuoioarredo”, which led the company into the market of leather furnishings for yachts, boutiques, and wall and floor coverings for the most important global brands.
The highest-standard panel processing techniques have been developed for Cuoioarredo.
Their precision and reliability is thanks to the use of lasers and numerically controlled pantographs.
This research has also given way to producing objects that are unique in their genre for quality, ease of use, durability and maintenance.
Thanks to its modern production plants and advanced technology, Cuoificio Bisonte is currently among the most efficient and successful tanneries of Italy, producing hides of various thicknesses, from 3 to 6 mm, for shoes of all descriptions.
Barrel-dyed hides in fashion colours, velvety “Nubuck” hides, superflex “Glove” hides, and “Idrorep” hides with an elevated degree of impermeability.
Giuliano Novelli and Mario Caponi, who lead this company, perpetuate the tradition of leather with an eye towards innovation.
