Thimeco

WHO ARE WE?
We are a group of companies who produce and distribute the most innovative and luxurious natural leathers you will find in Europe. Our tannery VKP LT produces, designs and develops these leathers for the high end hospitality industry, as well as supplying to the residential and traditional design industries. We operate every process – from raw materials to finished articles. In 2012, our top shoe and accessory leather collection was released, selling well across the country and Europe and continuing our tradition of top quality and rapid supply.
HISTORY
The Group started as a small one-company start-up 31 years ago, and has since diversified to become the leader in upholstery and shoe leather production in Russia, and a well-known, successful, entity across Europe and the Americas. The company headquarters were established at the heart of Italy in the mid-80s, at the centre of the leather world with cities such as Santa Croce merely a stone’s throw away. When the USSR collapsed, Russia was specifically targeted by Thimeco as a growth market, and this vision led to the company being established, with a top tannery in Russia producing the best quality natural leathers to be exported across Europe.

HOW WE MAKE OUR LEATHER

PROCURE MATERIALS
Using the second biggest tannery in Russia - a 21,600 square metre full-cycle tannery, the hides are first procured from top hide collectors and then brought together and processed.
GRIND LEATHER
To prepare the materials, best-in-market splitting, dyeing, drying, measuring and milling (to name but a few!) machines are used to develop the hides into wet blue and crust.
FINISH LEATHER
The leather is then finished using even more advanced machinery, and Thimeco have then produced the most innovative and best quality leather found in Europe!
LEATHER COMPLETE!
The 1.8m sq ft of finished leathers that are produced per month include Upholstery, Upper Shoe, Fine, Linings, Automotive and Split leathers, with our Upholstery range being recognised as the best in Russia.
" Your leather is only
as good as you keep it. "

TAKE CARE OF YOUR LEATHER

HUMIDITY
The hide is a porous material - it absorbs moisture and releases moisture really easily. Mass concentration of water shouldn't be less than 10-16%, which is only possible to maintain if your home is at a normal humidity. Without protection, the leather will begin to crack and the dye to shatter.
DUST
The fatty components of the skin used in your leather dry up over time - to keep your leather going for years, it should be cleaned with a damp cloth regularly to remove any dust particles. Using gentle movements will help prolong the life further.
LIGHT
Light is a direct influence in the fading of leather - your leather should be kept under gentle lighting, and as an added protection, shouldn't be kept close to sources of heat or electricity.
DIRT
Dirt is likely to be more difficult to get off than dust - when a damp cloth and gentle rubbing aren't enough, use a neutral soap solution - never use chemical solvents, stain removers or powders and pastes. This will, without fail, destroy layers of figment and dye, ruining the quality of your leather.
" The most refined leather,
the best variety of finishes. "
