Hello everybody I speak for the property of Gruppo Vecchia Toscana SpA, tanning group of primary importance in Europe, I'm glad to announce you that the company has taken the management of Ilcea Tannery since 01/01/2014.
The entire technical staff of Ilcea still work for the tannery and all the historical articles are now available for production.
The entire production starts now from top quality raw calf hides (european origin), while, in the last years, the old Ilcea because of its financial problems, was forced to buy wet blue hides from many different origins and this fact caused some quality problems.
I think that this is an extremely good news for all the lovers of top end shoes, because Ilcea calf leather is unique.
I hope that Ilcea can return to the glories of the past and you will be able to buy top end shoes with Ilcea leather.
