Pioneers of Italian-made
A key player in the Italian tanning industry for over a century, Conceria Conti was established in 1910 in Urgnano (BG, Italy), the birthplace of its founder, Giuseppe Conti, and the current headquarters of the company. Four generations of the family have taken turns at the helm of the company, carrying on the passion for tanning with dedication, so much so that they are considered the Italian pioneers of leather, capable of anticipating market needs and providing, before anyone else, cutting-edge solutions for sustainable leather production. Specialised in the processing of skivers, cross-bred, lamb and goat, today the tannery mainly produces top quality leather linings but also outdoor leather goods, footwear, bookbinding, clothing and special items. Conceria Conti is a member of UNIC (Italian acronym for National Union of the Tanning Industry), the world’s most important association of tanning industries.
