All of the leathers we use is vegetable tanned leather that comes from renowned tanneries in Italy & the US. Vegetable tanned leather uses natural materials in the tanning process like tree bark and other plant tissues. It’s entirely eco-friendly and one of the oldest methods of tanning known to man. Compared to other methods, it's a slow process and takes about 6 weeks.
