What is vegetable tanned leather?
Vegetable tanning is the worlds oldest and most labor intensive tanning process. It utilizes environmentally safe, natural tannins found in a select few plants throughout the world. Each region has particular methods for their process. By using the barks, branches, leaves, and even some fruits of the selected plants, tanners can create a beautiful, durable, and environmentally friendly material that we and countless craftsmen dating back to the ancient greeks have used to create objects of beauty and utility.
