The brand value of the Riviere workshop, in Italy, lies in the elegance with which its craftsmanship brings out the details of contemporary living. Italy’s finest craftsmen have accumulated centuries of manufacturing tradition, skillfully using leather and other, less common, materials to make first-rate products including hand-woven leather storage cases, Makassar ebony trays, and lacquerware. In their capable hands, everyday objects become exquisite and refined, introducing a new “style for living”.
Riviere uses a soft and lustrous leather called Nappa, which is treated with special botanical tannins and is of the same grade as that used for their custom interiors by Rolls-Royce and Bentley. The leather has a natural grain that appeals to the eye and to the touch, and its high degree of perfection forbids excessive use of chemical dyes.
