The particularity of the CAF is that its handicraft processing methods have remained unchanged for generations. In the CAF, everything of the workshop remains as it was 50 years ago. The products are processed manually. The leather is fleshed with the"coltella", which has no seams, and the products are bent with wet leather on wooden forms, tapped and designed, cold-glued with plant adhesives. The natural glue combines with the leather which can never peel off. This production process gives the object its own hardness of structure, which is its main feature. The coloring is also very important: the colors are all made with natural pigments, and the coloring has a different hue in each item, so each piece is unique. This is the manual processing of Florentine leather ("Cuoietto"), which is different from the leather goods' industry. Vasco and Fabio Capanni have almost remained the only representatives of this art and they are the depositaries of a high-quality tradition, based on the idea of uniqueness, the value of craftsmanship, experience, the skill and the creativity of the craftsman that the production of incomparable pieces refers.
Czarny recommends Florentine leather cigar cases:
"Among the leather cases for cigars, the cigar cases made of Florentine leather are especially noticable. Their smooth and shiny leather offers a unique visual and tactile impression. The peculiarity of the "Florentine cases" is the missing seam. Unlike most cigar cases made of leather, whose ends are sewn together with a string, the "Florentinas" are seamlessly welded together by pressure. This creates the impression that the Florentine cases are made of one piece of leather.
The leather in a Florentine case is quite thick and strong and provides the cigars with enough protection. In summary, the Florentine case is a good choice for demanding and quality-conscious people. "
