Baxter, the story of a family centered on leather passion…
Baxter history begins in 1990 in the creative Italian design pole. It is a well-known area, rich in highly qualified labor; Baxter is indeed the product of a great entrepreneurial dream, a union between the old craft traditions, experience, and creative energy. Baxter was developed and has grown over time, nourished by an endless passion for what is beautiful, well done, thought, and produced in order to transmit emotions.
Baxter is the story of a family, one that revolves around two Italian entrepreneurs, Luigi and Paolo Bestetti. It is the DNA that characterizes Italian family businesses, springing from the love of a material and conveying the manufacturing culture. By family business, Baxter means a concept that involves both the relationship with all the staff and the distribution partners, with whom each one is part of a true symbiosis, which allows everyone to work and grow together. Baxter is also a story about the feeling that “Made in Italy” design is capable of evoking, and also about the balance of ingredients which, as in a perfect recipe, make the experience of looking at an object, touching it, and immersing in its mood truly unique. It is a story of furnishing which, like the extensions of our skin, becomes leather, hides, and transforms into special clothes talking about the passage of time and tracing the lines of the future…
It all started in the traditional tanning districts of Italy, where master craftsmen transform raw materials into pieces of leather with a unique appearance, softness, and touch. A path using a manual process, where experience and culture are the essential elements which allow Baxter to produce prestigious leather, which is a symbol of its excellence. According to Luigi and Paolo Bestetti: « Our leather has a soul: it is a living product which must be treated gently and which is sublimated over time, becoming a witness to the life of those who use it ».
Since 2005, Baxter has been ISO 14001 certified, and eco-sustainability is still one of its guiding principles. The new Baxter premises, existing since 2011, are the first “climate house” for public use, class A certified in Europe. It is a workplace with low environmental impact where light, sun exposure, and materials create great comfort and a symbiotic relationship with the surrounding environment.
Baxter may be just a young story, which dates back only to 1990, but also to a century-old entrepreneurial tradition, which flourished in the fertile land of Brianza, which has always produced excellence in furniture for the aristocracy of the first and middle class, and which continues today in its creations for all lovers of beautiful works. It is a 100% Italian story that radiates in an international panorama, which starts from the reinterpretation of English taste and evolves, through the art of work and leather shaping, towards the production of unique collections. This is the story of Baxter!
