Dior buys Art Lab, a print and leather-finishing company

According to the Milanese business newspaper Il Sole 24 Ore, the Parisian house of Dior has acquired the Tuscan company Art Lab, which specializes in digital printing on leather and hand-finishing leather. 

Details of the deal were not disclosed. The acquisition of Art Lab will allow Christian Dior to increase its production capacity in Italy, where the company already manufactures high value-added luxury goods. 

Dior, part of the LVMH conglomerate, already operates two leather goods factories in Naples and one in Florence, one bag factory in Lugagnano Val d'Arda, between Parma and Piacenza, and another in Casarano, in the Salento region in Puglia in collaboration with local producer Antonio Filograna-Sergio. The brand is also planning to build a new men's shoe factory near Venice, opposite the women's shoe factory. 

Founded in the late 1980s by Marcello Tatoni, Art Lab was a pioneer in digital printing directly on leather and also experimented with various material processing technologies. Currently, the company, which employs about 70 people, carries out orders for some of the world's famous fashion brands, providing a complete finishing cycle with its advanced equipment. The tannery, located in Santa Croce sul Arno, Tuscany, run by two of Tatoni's children, Ilaria Sassetti and Dario Tatoni, and engineer Andrea Balleri, generated an income of around 2020 million euros in 5.
