Vegetable Tanned Leather
Vegetable tanned leather refers to the tannage or method of tanning the cowhide into leather. It’s called “vegetable” because of the natural tannins used in the tanning process like tree bark. Vegetable tanning or veg tan as it’s sometimes called is one of the oldest methods of tanning known to man. It has literally been around for centuries. But less than 10% of the world's leather is tanned this way today.
What makes vegetable tanning so unique is it can be used to make thicker leather and results in more body and character - perfect for bag making. Vegetable-tanned leather also tends to age better and develops a rich patina over time. And it has that awesome classic leather smell.
ELW's vegetable tanned hides are selected for quality to avoid dirt, holes, bumps, and major scratches.
The tooling leather is thicker, more robust, and less prone to cracking and damage. The cowhide leather material is durable and lasts longer in comparison to the fabric. The leather has properties of repelling moisture, which also resists sun and heat damage, making it multi-functional.
