Bonded Leather since 1958

CORIUM is a registered Brand, witness of the High End Trend of Prodotti Alfa, Leader in the Market since 1958.

Today, as 50 years ago, the company has maintained a family style management in its headquarters in the province of Pavia. For generations the Audisio family has been pursuing the passion for the handcrafting of leather. The grandfather Agostino Audisio, owner of a tannery, gave birth to the Prodotti Alfa company from a lucky idea, starting up the production of bonded leather. Having to cope with the need to dispose of the amount of waste produced by his tannery, he came up with the idea of bonded leather, so instead of disposing of all the scraps of leather from the processing of the Audisio Tannery, he began to reuse and introduce them again in the production cycle.

The raw material is still represented today by chrome tanned bovine hide trimmings, known as wet blue, indicating the leather that takes on a blue colour immediately after the first chrome tanning and before dyeing operations.
