Leather and humankind

Leather and humankind

Use of leather has indeed played a significant role in the development of human civilization throughout history. Our affinity to leather might have been ingrained over the ages as it was an integral part of survival and day to day activities. 

Leather was one of the earliest materials used by humans for clothing. It provided a durable and protective covering, especially in harsh environmental conditions. Leather garments offered better insulation and protection against the elements compared to other natural materials.

Beyond clothing, leather was utilized for making tents, shelters, and various tools. Its versatility and durability made it valuable for crafting items such as bags, pouches, and containers. The craftsmanship associated with leather working has been passed down through generations, contributing to the preservation of cultural traditions.

As humans developed modes of transportation, leather became essential in the production of harnesses, saddles, and other components. The durability and strength of leather made it suitable for use in creating comfortable and functional items for both humans and animals.

The use of leather for parchment and vellum played a crucial role in the preservation of written knowledge. Before the widespread availability of paper, leather was used for creating manuscripts and important documents.

At Castello DaVarg, we are proud continue this tradition of connecting authentic natural leather with the discerning few.
