Oscar Maschera is a master artisan that manipulates leather – giving beautiful form to quality and functional things. The collection consists of baskets, boxes, trays, writing-desk items, small pieces of furniture, bags and cases. Warmth and functionality, naturalness and purity of lines characterize these beautifully hand-crafted pieces.
The leather is robust, soft and matures overtime like wood or wine. Genuine Italian leather is tanned exclusively with vegetable extracts without the use of harmful chemicals and greased in barrels – methods which give it body and renders it soft to the touch. Veins and small scars are confirmation of the unique nature of a totally natural hide – of excellent quality, still worked today in one of the most ancient and noble Italian traditions.
