of the leather industry


Our lives are intertwined with stories made up of people. Entrepreneurs who have made leather their reason for living. Erretre decided to tell these stories.

A tribute to these extraordinary people.

Why the Erretre Legacy project

We decided to tell these stories because it is right. Very often, absorbed by the frenzy of everyday life and the race for technological progress, we forget where we started. People are the basis of this sector, with their knowledge, skill and stubbornness they have given way to something that must be handed down. A precious legacy to protect, tell and show. All of this is Legacy.

The Erretre Legacy project

The Legacy project was born with the aim of telling the stories and lives of the people who have contributed to making the tanning market great. Behind the machines there are people, dreams, desires, goals that very often we don't know. We therefore decided to tell these ordinary lives of extraordinary people, to celebrate their successes.


The legacy left by these dreams are the foundation of the thriving industry we live in today. Today's industries, machines, products would not exist without the legacy left to us by the people who before us strongly believed in the development of the sector. We want to protect, preserve and tell this legacy through real life experiences and making it clear how important this legacy is.

Origin project

The origin of Legacy

Origin video is the principle, an introduction to the Legacy project. A thought translated into images, a journey through history, in search of the legacy left by the people who preceded us. Our journey begins with a story, the expert hands of people who have made leather their passion in their life.


In the desire to understand how we got here we then started talking to different people, making meetings in which sometimes the conversation went to discuss future perspectives and how it all began.


We have thus planned several trips with the aim of meeting people, discovering lives and immersing ourselves in their stories of passion and courage, leaving a legacy for the future.

Australia project

In the land of kangaroos

Australia is a tough land with a very arid climate. This has always made leather processing an extremely complicated and difficult process to apply. Furthermore, kangaroo leather, the main type of leather traded in the country, is extremely difficult to treat. Despite this a man, Lindsay Packer of Packer Leather decided to invest in this sector. He had a dream, to become a tanner in Australia.


The story of a man who successfully gave away with his knowledge, courage and stubbornness to what is today the number one Australian company in the world for processing kangaroo leather. A journey into the history and legacy of this person, the personification of the idea that even in a hostile world like Australia it is possible reach our goals.

America project

The land where everything is possible

America, land of opportunity. Always coveted and admired and desired by many, but only those who truly have attitude can achieve results, like Helmut Beutel. Considered a legend, he moved to America at a young age and became one of the best automotive technicians in the world. His combination of creative and scientific thinking has allowed him to become a point of reference in the tanning world.

The auto industry in the United States is part of the country's own culture, it's huge and extremely competitive. This did not stop Beutel who, on the contrary, with his intelligence and stubbornness allowed him to excel in the sector. The story of a man who put all of himself, his passion, his dedication and his strength in what he believed. A legend.
