What leather to buy? The right leather for your business and for all your products.

DurDan offers you a vast selection of leathers and hides with different processes and finishes for leather goods' production. Discover our selection of lamb and calfskin leathers and choose the finish that better suits your brand. The best leather fabric for clothing is d'lamb leather, very soft and resistant. Usually, lamb napa is the most appreciated leather fabric for clothing. Thus, for the production of men's and women's leather jackets and coats, leather trousers, dresses, capes, shirts or leather gloves, my suggestion is to look at lamb leather and choose the process and finish good for your product. Instead, the best leather fabric for bags and accessories, shoes, suitcases, cars' seats, and furniture is calfskin and half-calfskin leather, thicker and more robust, with its different finishes. If your brand produces leather belts, wallets, and bags, leather sofas or car upholstery, leather boots, sneakers, or moccasins, you can look for calfskin leathers with the finish that suits your production.

DurDan's Story

I've been born and raised in Solofra, one of the three main Italian tannery centers, and my family has always worked in the leather industry. I've essentially grown up in tanneries following my father, a leather industrialist. Since I was a child, I've always taken part in the leather's production process and I've always been fascinated by the path and the different phases that make this material unique and refined. I've been fascinated by leather production since I can remember. Thus, I've decided to keep working within this industry, which represents for me my family, my childhood, and my tradition.
I started my working path 30 years ago, turning my childhood passion into an exciting job. Since then, I've been developing my knowledge and competencies in the leather industry. I have advanced knowledge of all production processes, from rawhide and wet blue to finished leathers, and I am an expert in recognizing all leather types and their quality.
During the last years, I devoted myself to research and development and market research of fashion trends. Thus, I can offer my clients always the actual and up-dated perspective of the leather industry connected with the fashion business and advise them in the best possible way in their choices. I'm an expert in leather quality assessment, clients' support for the choice of leathers according to their needs, and order's quality control through the entire production process. In 2021 I realized my dream to fund my own business, "DurDan".
DurDan was born from my will to personally put myself in the game and my need to have a one-to-one relationship with my clients. I aim to support my clients in the best way possible through leathers' choice and assure them the best option for their needs. Thanks to the knowledge handed down from father to son, I have great experience in the tannery industry. My knowledge, together with my numerous collaborations with many of the most renowned Italian tanneries, makes me a salesman able to assure his clients the best value for money of leathers and hides.

DurDan is based in Solofra, which is recognized worldwide as "the leather city". This little city of Irpinia distinguishes itself for processing leather since 1300. Thanks to its vegetation rich in tannins, vegetable extracts used for tanning, and its geographical location between mountains and rivers, Solofra has been and continues to be one of the main Italian tanning centers. The city is especially renowned for lamb leather. During the years, the numerous tanneries in Solofra improved their techniques and high-tech machinery, specializing in the production of top-quality hides and leathers. Moreover, they developed new processes to tan leathers, thus, not only keeping pace but boost the world of high fashion.
The tanneries I work with offer a great choice of leather fabric for clothing, accessories, and leather goods.
