Leather processing has very distant origins, in fact there is talk of some leather trading already back in the Middle Ages. Around the end of the 19th century the tanning evolution was established by the development of innovative processes and processing techniques, by the introduction of new chemical compounds, and by the use of increasingly modern equipment. In the 20th century, the tanning industry that had developed in the Chiampo Valley, found prosperity due to the surrounding natural environment, suitable for helping the growth of the tanning district, today still one of the largest in Italy.
The company was founded with the acronym S.A.L.P. (Società Arzignanese Lavorazione Pelli) in a small warehouse on the outskirts of Arzignano. The first type of chrome-processed fine hides was baby calf hide intended for high-end men’s footwear;
The company became Conceria La Veneta Srl;
The tannery specialised in processing hides for high-end women’s footwear. There was also an expansion of the market beyond national borders, reaching French trade;
Acquisition of Sacpa that had been processing calf suede and full grain hides since 1937 with the help of innovative and sophisticated traditional French technology;
A commercial expansion project was implemented, allowing Conceria La Veneta to enter the European market of East and West Germany, France and Spain;
A global internationalisation strategy was implemented: Russia, USA and Great Britain;
Leather products are developed and specialised in the high-end men’s and women’s footwear sector. Items are added for leather goods, jackets and accessories. Since 2019 we have approached the world of leather clothing and focus on production has been manifested with the support of Industry 4.0, making it possible to reduce time and consumption, monitor the data flow, and ensure unique quality.
Conceria La Veneta has developed over time, improving from every perspective. The company’s business began as a tannery of calf and baby calf hides intended for the most renowned Italian, French and Spanish shoe factories. The historical evolution has allowed the company to reach increasingly sought-after markets, as saddleries.
The progress of Conceria La Veneta has been driven by company decisions aimed at keeping the company in step with the times: it has set up its own laboratory inside to constantly monitor product research, development, testing and verification.
A production area has also been set up with technologically updated machines that require completely manual steps, allowing unique processing that gives the leathers that touch of craftsmanship.
