Our products are designed in the USA and made in Italy. Our craftsmen are known for producing many of the world’s finest fashion accessories. We infuse the knowledge and heritage of Italian artisanship into an entire line of high fashion products that express a modern yet classic style. diFeltro combines a 700-year-old handmade Italian tradition with a contemporary design approach.
diFeltro products are designed to maintain the right balance between functionality, aesthetics, and luxury quality. We want to defy the stereotype that luxury accessories cannot be practical. Each detail is carefully considered and tested. Our designs enhance the distinctive properties of felt and leather by interpreting them into a line of practical and highly refined products.
100% Vegetable Tanned Premium Italian Leather
Hand Selected, Drum Dyed, and Hand Finished. Our tannery uses traditional Tuscan tanning methods producing exclusively vegetable-tanned leather. This type of natural tanning process uses tannin extracted from chestnut, quebracho, mimosa, and tara trees. Vegetable tanning is one of the oldest procedures and is a slow process that is considered an art with long and complex production times.
100% Merino Wool Felt
Water Repellent Finish. The most highly-prized wool comes from the Merino breed of sheep. Our felt is made from 100% Merino wool, treated with a water repellent finish and manufactured in Germany, a country with a rich heritage for products made from felt. Merino wool felt is specially known to hold highly saturated and lightfast colors.
Every phase of the diFeltro line is handcrafted in Italy in order to achieve the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality. We meticulously oversee all stages of production, from the cutting of the leather to the stitching and packaging. Our products are completed by hand with the utmost care. The diFeltro line showcases the superior handcrafting methods that have given the "Made in Italy" mark prestige.
diFeltro uses Merino wool felt and vegetable-tanned leather, both 100% natural materials. Our products will last a long time with proper care.
100% Merino Wool Felt Care Instructions
Gently run a lint roller or naturally bristled garment brush over the felt, cleaning off any accumulated dust. When not in use, please store in its protective bag. To spot clean, please only use a small amount of wool detergent with water no warmer than 30°C/86°F. After cleaning, always lay flat to dry.
100% Vegetable Tanned Leather Care Instructions
Vegetable-tanned leather is tanned using natural tannins. We suggest letting your leather age naturally, as it will become more beautiful with time. However, if you would like to keep a more uniform look, place a small amount of unscented soap and wipe with a water dampened cloth. Commercial leather cleaners can also be used.
