Apple Watch

Apple sourced the leather for their Apple Watch band "Leather Loop" from Arzignano.

Here is the quote from their Apple Watch website:

The Venezia leather for this band is handcrafted in Arzignano, Italy. With an artisan heritage spanning five generations, the tannery has a history of partnership with some of the most prestigious names in fashion. A delicate milling and tumbling process enhances the beautiful pebbled texture. This traditional craftsmanship is combined with an innovative approach to design. Magnets concealed within the soft, quilted leather allow you to simply wrap it around your wrist for a precise fit and a trim look. Available in stone, light brown, bright blue, and black." [1]



The club of city is A.S.D. Union ArzignanoChiampo that plays in Serie D.
