#4: What should you do when you receive a product provided with Cites certification?

In our previous article, we tried to explain you more in detail what a Cites certificate is and why this document is so important for us, as producers and exporters of exotic leather goods, but, above all, for the environment surrounding us.

Making sure that an exotic leather product is certified by Cites means not only having the certainty of purchasing an exclusive item made of quality and fine leathers, but also safeguarding Nature and the continuation of many otherwise endangered animal species.

Requesting 100% certified Cites leather when ordering or buying a certain item in exotic leather means fighting poaching and illegal hunting, thus ensuring a slow but gradual repopulation of many species, still protected because threatened with extinction within their natural habitat.

Now that we have raised awareness of this theme and made you more conscious of how our business works, what rules we must follow and how much effort we put into our work every day, it is time to understand how the Cites certificate can affect the timing and methods of receiving the product by the end customer.

As well as sunny days, the 21st of June brings the sales season: indeed, throughout Italy discounts start at the beginning of July. In Marche region, in our case, they will start on July the 7th and will end on the first days of September.

#3 What is the Cites Certificate? Let’s explain it in plain and simple terms.

Today we want to tackle a very important topic not only for us who speak from years of experience, but for anyone who decides for the first time to get in touch with the exotic leather trade sector: the CITES certificate.

Before introducing the subject, we want to let you know that in this article we will not use specific terms that are difficult to understand; anyone wishing to explore the topic in more detail, in fact, can simply resort to a search on Google (or visit our website).

In this article, we want to tell you with simple words and different eyes “the meaning and purpose” of this document.

#2: The informed purchase of exotic leather products

Exotic leather and the creations made with it are a theme just as wide as important to discuss. Last time we spoke about the indestructibility and resistance over time of this kind of leather, this time we want to tackle one of the most sensitive topics, in our opinion: is it right or not to buy and sell items of this kind? What is their weight in nature?

We have been dealing with the production and distribution of items in exotic leather for many years (python, crocodile, alligator, ostrich) and during this time we’ve come into contact with many people all over the world and with their different approaches to the subject; unluckily, we came to the conclusion that the majority of them can be divided in two large categories, both of them too categorical and inevitably wrong.

8 reasons: why you should buy a new belt this Spring

Did you know that the belt is an item with very ancient origins? The first evidence dates back to the Bronze Age. An accessory with such a long history has necessarily taken on many rich, different meanings, besides the most practical one: to keep the pants steady and firm!

In the time of ancient Rome, the belt also had a symbolic value, enough to represent a “status symbol” able to demonstrate the role and weight in society, while starting from the Renaissance it enters the female fashion becoming an ornament and a symbol of elegance and refinement.

Today the belt is an essential accessory in the male wardrobe, a little less in the female one. Why? Very often this practical ornament is considered unnecessary, inconvenient or difficult to match.

Actually, the belt is a very simple and complete accessory, able to radically transform an outfit and change your figure. For this reason, never underestimate its usefulness!

In this article, we will give you 8 reasons to wear a belt. We are sure that at the end of this reading you won’t be able to resist buying a new one!

#1 Is exotic leather indestructible? How to take care of it

THE FIRST TOPIC OF OUR CHECKLIST

Exotic Leather

Everyone is talking about exotic leather: from the web, to newspapers and fashion documentaries, there is a copious amount of information available that, if read more carefully, seem to always be the same, enough to make us think that there is not real information after all.

About the subject there are, in fact, many theories, very many hypothesis and as many prejudices that make practically impossible to distinguish between real and fake, reality and phantasy.
