*Vegetable-tanned leather is produced by artisans using ancient tanning recipes and modern technology. It consists of using natural tannins extracted from plants, mainly chestnut, oak or Argentinean quebracho tree, to dye the leather. The tradition dates back to the Renaissance.
The main ingredient in the vegetable leather tanning process is time. It takes about 40 days to transform raw hides into unique, durable, and versatile vegetable-tanned leather. It's a natural and environmentally friendly process that combines fashion with tradition and past with the future.
The beauty of vegetable-tanned leather is that it doesn't loose its versatility and luster with age. Once dyed, one piece of vegetable-tanned leather never looks exactly the same as another. It is also more resistant to water than any other kind of leather. The best way to clean such leather is to use a dry wool cloth.
**The special compound - composition based on beeswax. All components are of natural origin.
***Saddle stitch - a method of binding for leather with a durable waxed thread from both sides of the sections of a leather at the same time with two needles (If some strand is damaged, the other anyway keeps this section of leather).
