Roma Saddle Bag
Roma Saddle Bag is made in Italy with full grain vegetable tanned calfskin leather. This leather was handmade Etruscan style in the heart of Tuscany to soften, patina, and develop a silky touch. Only vegetable extracts and natural oils were used to create rich, vibrant color and a tender, semi-gloss finish. Roma has a built-in cross body strap that is soft and comfortable – it adjusts to 68″ maximum length. The two gusset compartments are 1″ and 2″ deep and the top flap has a magnetic closure. The inside is leather lined, has a zip pocket, and 2 multi-function smartphone pockets. Magnetic flap closure.

Real Vegetable Tanned Leather Smell
Real vegetable tanned leather has a sweet scent when it is brand new – one customer told us he thought it was the combination of a candy cane and sharpie pen – we agree. At Floto we love this smell – to us it is a stamp of authenticity for certified Italian vegetable tanning. Put another way – no accelerator chemicals (which speed up the tanning process and kill the vegetable tannin scent) are used to make this leather.
Some customers find the scent curious and a couple have found it overwhelming over the years. If you are like most customers and love the smell savor it before it fades because it will. In our experience the “new bag smell” fades after a few uses. You can also liberally apply a wax based leather cream or conditioner on the bag to speed the acclimation process and extend the life of your bag.
Please take note of this characteristic.
Floto Leather Bag Ingredients
Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather
At Floto we prefer to work with genuine hand stained vegetable tanned leather. The supple skin has a sweet scent, is easy to cut and sand, strong and flexible, and does not contain any toxic or harmful substances. The Roma Saddle Bag is made with supple calfskin leather that was hand stained in the heart of Tuscany.
Suede Leather Interior
The Floto Roma Saddle Bag has soft suede leather lining. The interior of this crossbody bag includes a zip pocket, front gusset pocket, and 2 multi-function pockets for smartphones, charges, make-up, etc. The top flap has a magnetic closure.
Artisan Made in Italy
The Floto Roma Saddle Bag is handcrafted in Florence, Italy by skilled artisans practicing techniques handed down for generations. We skive each leather panel to between 1.4 mm and 1.6 mm thickness to make the Roma Saddle – depending on the design and function of the part. The end result is a supple leather bag that is soft to the touch and semi-rigid in structure.
Genuine Hand Stain
Artisans in the hills of Tuscany carefully hand stain each Floto leather skin by using a special cotton sponge and non-toxic vegetable based stain.
We Stand By Our Products
Floto is an American brand. Every Floto leather bag is artisan made in Italy, but it was designed and packaged in the United States. As a small family owned company we are thankful and grateful for your business. We stand by all of our products to ensure you can enjoy them as much as I do. If you experience any problems with your Floto bag during its natural life you can send it to our Connecticut workshop for repair. Please let us know if we can be of any help along the way.
