For us, quality counts more than quantity and for this reason we prefer small productions, personally taking care of every aspect of the work: from the style to the project up to the handmade production of products using Italian quality materials Km0.
We believe in the human sustainability of craftsmanship and Made in Italy is our philosophy. Each product is numbered to guarantee its uniqueness and authenticity.
Salizada was born in the Riviera del Brenta, in the Venetian land, one of the most important manufacturing and craftsmanship area in Italy specialized in footwear and leather goods.
In this historic place we have started our “bottega” and created a 0 km supply chain from design to production, that takes place within a radius of 30 km.
Leather is a byproduct of the food industry and animals are not kill to use their skins. If the leather reuse process did not exist, the environmental impact and disposal costs would be considerably higher. From a waste product we have one of the most valuable and precious materials, reducing waste.
We only work with tanneries that are actively engaged in respecting the environment and in the reuse and purification of processing water.
We get our supplies from a company in the Vicenza Tanning District equipped with an Environmental Management System according to the ISO 14001 standard, certified UNI EN ISO 9001: 2008 for leather processing processes and attentive to the European REACH legislation.
Upcycling is the process of converting old or discared materials into something useful. When you upcycle you are giving an item a new purpose. It only requires your own creativity and patience but above all it allows to reduce the consumption of new raw and the amount of waste you create.
Our upcycle capsules are made, for example, with jute bags from the coffee industry.
They are sustainable bags and made to order: they are absolutely unique and unrepeatable pieces.
On our products you can find different logos and labels designed to tell you a story.
You will always find the “Salizada Made in Italy” label to emphasize the origin of our product, and the “Opposites Attract” label to ensure that we make exclusively handcrafted bags.
Our line of products created with recycled materials has been enriched with our “Upcycle Capsule” patch.
