BENEFITS OF VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER

Vegetable tanning is generally a time-consuming process requiring highly skilled craftsmen, which involves soaking hides in large baths of concentrated tannins over a course of several months.

Unlike chrome-tanned leather, veg-tanning is an organic method relying on natural vegetable tannins from bark or other plant tissues. Tannins from trees such as oak, chestnut, or mimosa are popular, but hundreds of tree types and other plants are known to have been used.

1) Traditional approach & organic tanning process

2) Leathers are thick and durable

3) All materials are biodegradable

4) Natural feel and “earthy” smell
