What is vegetable tanned leather?

Vegetable tanning is a process that has been around for hundreds of years and is one of the oldest methods used to tan hides. It’s traditional, artisanal and a thorough process, as it can take months to complete. The process utilises tannic acids naturally found in plants, tree bark and other natural elements and begins by immersing the hides in natural tannins to become leather. It creates the most natural feeling leather and will develop a more organic look that will gain more character over time.

What are the benefits of vegetable tanning?

  • It creates leather of high durability and strength which is far more efficient than some synthetic materials
  • Vegetable tanned leather can last an entire lifetime and is bio-degradable, so is not harmful to the environment when no longer used
  • It is a natural process from an eco-sustainable industry
  • Creates individual and unique leather pieces where no two hides are exactly the same
  • The leather produced has remarkable anti-ageing qualities whereby it develops its own ‘patina’, unique to the owner.
