Argos Tannery: an Italian story

Argos Tannery was originally started in the Sixties as a small, family-run artisan tannery, and has since been continued for generations with passion and loyalty to traditional methods.

At first concentrating on the production of quality leathers for footwear, from the beginning of the 1980s, with the introduction of ‘boat’ shoes, Argos Tannery was the first in Italy to specialise in the tanning and cutting of nautical-type leather for laces. In that same period, Stefano Tinghi, today the sole owner of Argos Tannery, joined the company’s board of directors.

This small revolution put our tannery at the forefront on the international leather market, prompting us to refine and expand our product range.

Today, Argos Tannery Srl embodies the very best characteristics in its production that have made this part of Tuscany known as one of Italy’s most important leather districts.
