Gabriele Boschetti found the first full-cycle tannery in Arzignano (Italy). Its first market is Germany, to which it serves with a high quality product. Calves for footwear and handbags are its hallmark of recognition.


In Arzignano (Vicenza- Italy) on the initiative of Gabriele Boschetti, the company Laba Srl comes to life with the aim of developing a new commercial activity.


After 2 years on the job, Conceria in 1^ Strada was inaugurated wherein the first processes were carried out: liming, tanning and dyeing, and work began on third-party projects.


The first machinery for finishing the leather and a press for the processing of the finished product were purchased. At the same time, the new "luxury tannery" project came to life, which still persists with calves.


The first branch was joined by the new in 4^ Strada, where the ribbon of the finishing department was officially cut.


15 years after its foundation, Laba moved to Montorso Vicentino (still in Vicenza Italy) at the new headquarters which also houses the new automated dyeing department. In these years the production were mainly aimed at the world of footwear.


The liming and tanning plant were transformed into a real branch in its independent state.


The company continues to grow and new collaborations were introduced with important projects in the world of leather goods and obtained ISO 9001 Certification, the internationally recognized standard for the creation, implementation and management of a Quality Management System within the agency.


The first investments in renewables were underway, with the aim of making Laba a sustainable reality: the first step was the installation of a 200kw photovoltaic system.


The first environmental certification according to the UNI EN ISO 14001 standard arrived, thanks to the introduction of a 500kw electric tracking cogeneration plant, among the firsts to be installed in the leather district of Arzignano district, to which was added the OHSAS 18001 certification, subsequently replaced by ISO 45001 which certifies the Occupational Health and Safety Management System.


The opening towards leather goods was strengthened.


A new factory was built, which bears witness to the continuous development of the company and where it can meet the increasingly numerous demands of the sector.


The path towards sustainability was undertaken and respect for the environment continues with the purchase of the innovative machinery called "New Technology" and the installation of an activated carbon filtering system to break down the PFAS entering the water. Laba officially becomes part of the "Italian champions of sustainability", awarded by UNIC.


The Laba offer was enriched with the latest generation "Chrome Free" tanning, thus satisfying the new needs of the market. Furthermore, it obtained the LWG Silver Certification (Leather Working Group) which certifies the environmental performance of leather goods manufacturers all over the world, certifying their effort towards ecological production and systemic management of Quality, Environment, Safety and Ethics, as required by market needs.


Laba has confirmed the renewal of the LWG Silver Certification (Leather Working Group).
