The Italian tanning industry, mainly made up of small and medium-sized enterprises, is considered a world leader in the sector. The Veneto region, headed by the province of Vicenza (which produces 51% of the Italian turnover, 32% of the European turnover in the sector and 8% on a global scale) specialises in the production of leathers for the automotive, leather goods, footwear and furnishing sector. Right here, in Montebello Vicentino, starts Thimeco’s story.
Past and present
The company was actually founded in November 1998 in Tuscany, thanks to the idea of Jouri Doumler, to give an important support and development to the Russian tannery “VKP LT” in terms of innovation and quality, taking adavantage of the Italian avant-garde.
Subsequently, in 2016, he opened a small sales office in Montebello Vicentino, which in a few years exponentially expandend thanks to the opening of new spaces and warehouses, becoming a reality known worldwide.
Technological development, experience, professionalism, respect for the environment and stylistic innovations have always been key elements that distinguish the company. In the Thimeco research laboratory, technicians and stylists create daily new products respecting the environment, with the aim of safeguarding our planet.
Thanks to the use of a completely eco-sustainable process, Thimeco technicians have created a metal-free calfskin lining that makes the leather completely eco-friendly, not releasing impactful elements into the environment.
Thimeco’s staff of stylists, inspired by the surrounding nature, every day give life to new prints and new colours.
Innovation and latest generation technologies are Thimeco’s winning formula
Decades of partnership that Thimeco maintains with the aforementioned Russian tannery, where the first stages of leather processing are carried out, is the starting point of the company’s product.
