Leather used to be called curàme,
in the Veneto dialect.
In the workshops of the old centre of Padua, master craftsmen used it to create exquisite objects that were both strong and beautiful, which could last many years and furnish or dress, carrying out their practical functions with subtle elegance. Important items for daily life, with excellent quality.
Their noses pressed to the windows of their childhood, the Fermon brothers learned to understand and love leather, appraise the techniques used in working it and imagine uses and applications. Working in the family firm, they eventually learned to make belts and accessories with the highest aesthetic and functional characteristics, and surrounded themselves with men and women as passionate as they were.
Today, the world’s top fashion houses depend on those solid, age-old manual skills, complemented by a designer touch and backed by technology, to create their small but precious treasures in leather.
