LEATHER

RICUOIO®

The RICUOIO® (Releather) line uses a material made from scraps of leather shavings, tanned by the addition of natural rubber.
It is as soft and elastic to the touch as the original raw material.
The items in Alisea’s collection range from briefcases to purses, from folders to notebooks, from pen holders to coin trays; objects designed with technical skill, craftsmanship and elegance.
RICUOIO® is available in charcoal gray (from trimmings of dark leather) and brown (from trimmings of light leather).

“By choosing an item from Alisea’s RICUOIO® range you are not contributing to the consumption of virgin raw materials, particularly those of animal origin”.

“Working with scraps of leather was one of Alisea’s first challenges because, as we live in Vicenza, we are familiar with the world of the tanneries and the amount of inevitable waste that is produced by this process.
Finding a creative way to use a material that, until then, had been only been used to create support structures inside leather products seemed like a great opportunity for those who, like us, want to develop sustainable design. We therefore wanted to transform what was perceived as a waste product into an object of value. A goal that was quickly achieved thanks to a craftsman who had realized the potential of this material and had already begun to work on re-using it. An interesting collaboration was born with this enlightened entrepreneur leading to the first RICUOIO® items being produced at the end of the nineties. It is a successful material which is, by far, the most used by Alisea. “
