Quality and characteristics of vegetable-tanned leather 

Today, despite millennium have passed, Vegetable Tanning remains the most classic, traditional and recognizable, and the closest to the condition of nature, the most respectful of ecology and the most suitable to combine comfort and aesthetics, fashion and tradition, versatility of use and uniqueness of product. With Vegetable Tanning nature has found a way to combine with nature, because the protein of the skin admirably receives the action of the tannin which is basically the principle active content in tannic plant materials. It is therefore precisely the tannin that allows the processing of leather into leather. This substance is found more or less concentrated in numerous types of trees and plants and can be present both in the bark and in the leaves, both in the wood and in the bark or even in fruits and roots. Are they that give the tanned leather that characteristic of uniqueness that makes it so special, so immediately distinguishable from other types of concepts. The “leather scent” is something unique and it is in fact impossible, in front of leather products, whether they are bags, belts, wallets or something else, not recognize the vegetable tanned for the particular reaction that occurs only with the skin which reacts to tannin mixtures.
