Our Clients Opinion

Beautifully crafted item. It was bought as a present for my daughter and she loved it
Susan 
This is a lovely magazine rack. It's very decorative and pleasant to look at. It holds a number of magazine's and papers easily and more importantly, is very sturdy: I have a very energetic dog running around and doesn't fall over when he runs past it or when he knocked into it. I really like it.

 Mrs Chritine P Hill
Excellent - well done Stylla. Order placed 22/12/17 - arrived 23/12/17 08.30 in the morning with standard delivery (estimated delivery was 02/12/18!). The gift arrived in time for Christmas and was just as shown on the website. Will definitely use Stylla again through Amazon.

Goat Leather Bags

 

What is the process?

 

Photo: Goat herding in India: happy, free-roaming Indian goats on their way to the next field.

 

The goats are taken out into the fields every day and when they are old enough they will be killed for the meat industry. Their hides are considered the waste product. This means that the hides can be bought rather cheaply which allows us to keep our operational costs low. This means we can offer our leather products at a very reasonable price. Our producers then prepare these hides before they enter the tanning process.

Our bags are tanned using vegetable-based solutions. Chemical products, such as Chrome 6, are not used in Gusti Leather nature production. The tanning methods we use have been used since as early as the 12th century and the complete process can take anything from a few weeks to a few months to complete!
