Vegetable-tanned leather refers to the naturally processed leather that is rare, expensive and artisanal.
Less than 10% of the world’s leather is vegetable-tanned. It takes weeks to make because of its centuries-old artisanal process. It’s rich in character and ages beautifully with patina. It also provides a firm structure that breaks in nicely with wear. Above all, it has that natural aroma that is the hallmark of an expensive luxury leather.
Ultimately, these factors are what makes vegetable-tanned leather highly valuable.
