There are numerous different types of leathers used in the creation of luxury bags, but both Ruga and Nappa are actually types of finishes to the top-grain leather used in the making of handbags and other leather products. Top-grain leather is the highest quality leather you can buy, with minimal marks and no remaining hair on it, like suede has. Nappa is a leather finish known for the subtle tanned color and smooth to the touch feel, it can be made from many types of animals skins. Ruga is a leather finish, often used with calf leather like on our 'La Doce Vita' bag, it is incredibly soft, has a subtle sheen to it and is tanned using organic vegetable dyes. Both the Ruga and Nappa leather finishes smooth out the leather so it doesn't have a pebbled surface or any visible flaws.
