Buy Vegetable Tanned Leather

Buy Vegetable Tanned Leather


Vegetable-Tanned Leather is one of the oldest methods of making leather and has been used for thousands of years. It uses natural tannin found in barks, wood and other parts of plants to convert animal skin into leather. This is the most environmentally friendly way to tan leather and the process is very lengthy, therefore expensive. The tanned vegetable leather is widely recognised as the most desirable for high quality products.

 


This tanned vegetable leather is the great for carving, staining, dying, tooling, moulding and embossing. The occasional mark is not uncommon as this variety of tanned leather has the top grain surface still intact - this adds to the character of the product and this will age beautifully over time. Shop our range of tanned vegetable leather here.
