Settebello reinvents itself to minimize the environmental impact of its production

Founded in 1957 in Santa Croce sull’Arno, Tannerie Settebello produces chrome-tanned leather for luxury leather goods and footwear. It is one of the pioneers in improving leather production and its environmental impact.


Careful production planning, effective management control in terms of product monitoring and traceability, a respect for delivery times and careful attention to details are extremely valuable guarantees for the customer.

Tannery Settebello is driven by the belief that a respect for the environment is a necessity for those wanting to start a business. That’s why it was the first company in this activity sector to obtain important recognitions, such as a UNI EN ISO 9000: 2001 quality certification (in 1998 with certificate N. 41), environmental certification UNI EN ISO 14001/96 (in 2002 with certificate N. 13) and the most recent certification –  EMAS –  obtained in 2007, only the third company in Italy to do so.

The tannery, which was rebuilt in 2006 with consultation assistance provided by professional technicians, now features highly modern production systems that, thanks to a co-generator, save significant energy.

The conviction of Tannery Settebello is that every sustained investment be directed to the creation of a product of consistent quality, all the while respecting the environment.
