Berluti has also been using the so-called Venetian Leather since the mid-1980s. This leather is tanned according to a method developed by Olga Berluti using only mineral and vegetable tanning agents.
This is not only environmentally friendly, but also means that dyestuffs can penetrate deeper into the leather, creating a unique look, or rather patina, reminiscent of a lacquered surface.
The great thing is that any Berluti leather article can be redyed as often as you like without the quality of the leather suffering.
Another special feature of Berluti is the "Scritto", a leather decoration with characters. Olga Berluti once bought a handwritten French letter in an auction. Since then, excerpts from that letter have adorned some of Berluti's leather items, allotted to the great calligraphy.
What fascinates me about Berluti and Hublot? Clearly the dedication with which you work. And the love of innovation, together with the commitment to the best quality and service, which both are committed to.
I have already reported on the cooperation between Hublot and Berluti on several occasions in the 100percentpassion blog as part of presentations of new products. Since 2016, however, a whole series of great timepieces have emerged from the cooperation between the two brands, so that a small overview is provided.
