The technique

As its name suggests, veg-tanning is an ancient organic method based on natural plant tannins from bark or other plant tissues. Tannins from trees such as oak, chestnut or mimosa are popular.

Due to its natural characteristics, leather ages beautifully over time and begins to show on its surface the story of its life and that of its wearer.

A soft luster usually appears in frequently handled areas, and some parts of the surface may darken as natural oils are absorbed.
