Careful leather selection

caravel_selezione_03

Skins, selected and purchased all over the world, come only from controlled farms and countries, which adhere to the CITES Regulation, the Convention concluded in Washington in 1975 that regulates International Trade regarding endangered species of wild fauna and flora threatened with extinction. Selection represents one of the most important activities in order to achieve high quality products. The ability to evaluate the methods of breeding and the relative installations, the areas of origin and industry knowledge, enables Caravel to select only those suppliers retained appropriate to pursue a policy that gives preference to absolute quality.

Product selection takes place in three stages:

  • Before buying the skins, the best lots are selected directly from the supplier
  • Once the skins are in the tannery, the employees check the quality level and compare it to what was actually ordered (selection of raw material)
  • Crust leather selection (size and quality)
