What is vegetable tanned leather?
Vegetable tanning uses organic materials and natural tannins derived from the barks, leaves and branches of trees and plants. This makes colors rich and deep in natural earthy tones such as browns, beiges, yellows and reds. The fibers of the animal hide used for the leather are visible in the finished product, lending an authenticity and personality to the leather that makes it more unique. The lack of consistency in color and tone is not a defect. Instead, it’s a characteristic of natural tanning processes, that makes the hide more beautiful.
Vegetable tanned leather is more sustainable, of a higher quality and gets better with age. It provides great value for money due to its durability. It is also a fashion classic that never goes out of style.
It’s a great choice for making saddles, holsters, belts, wallets, bags, shoes, purses and any kind of leathergoods.
