Vegetable-tanned leather is leather in its own right made with tanning agents of specific barks, fruits, or leaves that change the hide or skin of an animal into a durable material that has many attractive properties. New formulations have emerged, with those from grape seeds, olive tree leaves, and rhubarb showing great promise.
This procedure makes it feasible to get leathers that are firm, highly resistant to abrasion, specialized, and hypoallergenic. They also have antibacterial benefits and are breathable, with great absorption and evacuation of moisture. With its characteristic odor, warm colors that deepen over time, and”ability to age well”, vegetable-tanned leather embodies the very essence of the material.
