I’m currently working as a “LeatherSmith” in my Workshop located in southern Tuscany in a wild land called “Maremma”. Actually I’m Making and working on Customer’s request on customized handmade “Nicola Meyer” branded leather articles and leather covers for Apple or Samsung devices. The handmade and slow-time concepts are at the basis of My Idea of production: slow tanned leather, slow manual operations, accuracy and quality control lead me far away from contemporary idea of mass-production.
I use carefully selected calf leathers tanned with vegetable essences extracted from plants and barks according to the old Tuscan tanning secrets. I also use many natural materials all made in Italy such as Italian cotton lining, Metal accessories made in Italy certified. The continue research for new stunning materials brings me to find also the best exotic leather: alligator, ostrich, python, shark, stingray all tanned in Italy or the excellent and expensive Shell Cordovan Leather made by a Famous Tannery in Chicago.
