About Vegetable Tanning

Tanning with chemicals (tannins) from tree bark dates back thousands of years and has been used in America from early settlement through the present day. Tannins are generally referred to as "vegetable products" and this tanning makes leather very flexible, less water-soluble and more resistant to bacteria, thus giving it longer life and many desirable qualities. Because of its ability to retain shape, vegetable tanned leather readily accepts guide marks for stitching, can be molded, tooled, incised and otherwise decorated, as well as lending itself to uniform dyeing.
