In Arabic atanor means “crucible”, the vessel used by alchemists where simple matter is transformed into something precious: this workshop specialised in artistic binders was born from the meeting of Leonardo and Alessandro, experts in leatherworking and binding. The company produces handmade photograph albums in fine paper and leather, offers binding services and prints editorial products. A true haven of research and experimentation using only certified Italian materials including selected plant-tanned leathers and other natural products such as bark extract, animal fats and fish oils. All workings and decorations are carried out by hand: a skilful application of ancient techniques to produce singular and unrepeatable products.

Alessandro e Leonardo sono l’archetipo dell’artigiano moderno, coniugano la sapiente conoscenza di tecniche antichissime al gusto contemporaneo, ma senza dimenticare il fascino dell’eleganza antica. Il lavoro parte dalla scelta delle materie prime, la lavorazione manuale si avvale di pochissimi strumenti, il prodotto è sempre unico e personalizzato.
