The Perwanger tannery is a leather reality with behind a family tradition of more than two centuries, lovingly handed down from father to son for more than five generations since 1780. Born in the heart of the Italian Alps, in the village of Auer (BZ), begins to tan skins from local farmers as was tradition in every community to provide the local shoemaker craftsmen. In the early 70s, after many attempts and driven by his passion for mountains hikes, Josef Perwanger could give the water repellent proprieties to his leathers. Until then the climbers were forced to impregnate their boots with grease. Suede Nepal Perwanger was born. Thanks to the excellent water resistance and breathability and unique producing methods, the suede Nepal Perwanger is gradually into large-scale adopted in the mountain footwear, leisure and security shoes.
