What does veg-tan leather mean?

Vegetable-tanned leather is made using a special process that harnesses the power of natural tannins. These are found in organic materials to add a unique look and feel such as oak and spruce bark. Quebracho, tara pods, olive leaves, rhubarb roots or mimosa are also commonly used. These substances are placed in a pit along with the skins and hides. As these tannins are derived from plants, the leather is called vegetable-tanned leather. Making vegetable-treated leather biodegradable when the time comes around.

Vegetable tanned leather is particularly suitable for allergic subjects: the whole process of vegetable tanning is carried out without the use of toxic substances or heavy metals. Being of vegetable origin, tannins are absolutely safe even for the most sensitive skins.
