From carriages to car bodywork
In 1907, when Scamosceria Italiana started to produce leather for cleaning carriages and silverware in a small plant in Borgaro Torinese, nobody imagined that a century later chamois leather would have become an irreplaceable, ideal means of drying cars.
Thirty years later, the Borgaro – based company joined forces with Industria Marocchini di Monza and began to produce hat bands, using the finest sheepskins. Back then no one could have predicted that skiver would become a verstaile fashion item, highly valued by the most famous leather goods and clothing manufactures.
The tanning industry today
Many things have changed in the last century, with Mesi (Marocchinerie & Scamoscerie Italiane Spa) becoming a large tanning company, capable of processing over one million ovine skins a year. At the same time the company’s traditions are still preserved and developed by its family-run management, now in its fourth generation, and by an efficient, dedicated workforce, who is fully aware of the worth of the organization to which it belongs.
