What is Veg Tan Leather? Vegetable Tanned Leather is the preferred material for many leather workers because, despite the increased cost to buy, it is a beautiful material to work with. Only natural materials such as fruits, leaves, and husks are used to dye the leather, after which, each hide is hung for several weeks. This is compared to the globally dominant method of Chromium tanning, which reduces the process to a mere few days. Whilst certainly time-effective, it is important to me to try to avoid using chrome-tanned leather as the vast use of acidic chemicals in this process is very harmful to the environment, our waterways and oceans. These are things I strongly feel we need to protect, now more than ever.
