PATENTED AND CERTIFIED

Throughout the years, we have proudly developed patented systems that are able to enhance the functionality of our leathers. It means our leather is meticulously engineered and the patented surface treatment that will grant you proven and unique qualities, such as:

AEQUA LEATHER IS STAIN RESISTANT 

AEQUA LEATHER IS WATERPROOF

AEQUA LEATHER IS SCRATCH RESISTANT

 


KNOW WHAT YOU PAY FOR YOUR AEQUA

Quality comes with a price, which often is not worth it. You have the right to know what you are paying for. Don’t indirectly pay for unfair and exaggerated brand revenues, advertisement that may never arrive to you or extra marketing costs you know nothing about. Don’t compromise, the only thing you pay for is for what the bag really is. In other words, AEQUA.

TRULY MADE IN ITALY

Nowadays the origins of a product can be tricky and most of them are not even slavery free. We focus on manufacturing the whole product, not only part of it, within Italian’s distinguished tannery culture and know-how. Everything in AEQUA is TRULY made in Italy.

CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE TANNERY

A family leather factory located in Italy has been producing superior quality raw materials for many decades. In that establishment, within AEQUA finally found a cozy house to live in. Throughout the years, we have proudly developed patented systems that are able to enhance the functionality of our leather. It is manufactured and certified with the highest quality control possible and moreover it is meticulously engineered with a surface treatment that will grant you proven and unique qualities, such as stain, water and scratch resistance.

OUR PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH

As most say, quality comes with a price. Often that price entails additional costs that are just far too high for what the product really offers. Are you aware of the way the money you spend for a product is distributed among concept, design, production, marketing, warehousing, shipping and handling? We believe most of you are not. We have a different method, stepping away from the normal flow of the market. Our approach is based on fair price for people who knows what quality really is and are able to distinguish when a product is actually valid and is worth the price.

• • • 

The only thing you will pay for is for what the bag really is. In other words, AEQUA. We want to bring to you a unique bag with a truly competitive price.

 

AEQUA MEANS QUALITY

Nowadays it is difficult to have complete knowledge and control of where a product you buy comes from and how it is assembled. It is also difficult to test the authenticity of the material and last but not least if the product is slavery free. Most of the times we are not entirely aware of both the origins of the product and most importantly if it really fits our lifestyle and personal philosophy overall. We keep on buying products that are highly overpriced due to the brand and we end up by not really feeling related to what we have in our hands. 

AEQUA means to have freedom to buy something you know with precision what it truly is. AEQUA also means authenticity: these bags focus on real things such as high quality, care for production in all its stages, Italian heritage at its best, from concept to assembly.  In the moment we live in, these are crucial information that can really make the difference.

REAL COSTS, QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISES: THIS IS AEQUA. 

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! 

 

                            

 

Risks and challenges

AEQUA products are entirely made and assembled in Italy, so that the production process is always under control. Being close to our manufacturers allows us to constantly refine our processes and product quality. An entire team is responsible for in-house production and fulfillment, as well as monitoring all aspects of off-site manufacturing.

Our challenge is to always make sure every single bag will meet exactly the expectations of the future owner.
A lot of campaigns tend to let loose what their manifesto was in the first place. We will focus on having what we stand for always present in everything we do. We will make sure every single step of the production follows what we believe to be the best production practices respecting not only the final user but also respecting the manufacturer and providers that are behind each part of the process, respecting human and nature times of production. We aim to be available and open to dialogue with our clients on our philosophy and production culture. We would love to share our points of view with honesty and clarity in order to build a true community based on this exchange.

Being AEQUA a leather bag designed to be timeless, the real risk is for you to become addicted to it, making you leave behind all of your other bags :)
