That willpower and entrepreneurial spirit that made Enrico Girondi's family from Mantova and Elio and Franco Castaman's family from Arzignano come together is what makes the company grow. The first types of leather to be chrome-tanned were from cattle and calves, meant for the fashion, footwear, and leather goods sectors.
