*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 materials 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’s literally been around for centuries. It takes up to 6 weeks to complete the veg tan process.
Some advantages of vegetable tanned leather are that it can be made thicker and have more body than straight chrome tanned leather. This helps our bags maintain their shape. Vegetable tanned leather also tends to age better, developing a rich character and patina over time.
Vegetable tanned leather has that classic leather smell that is absolutely intoxicating and addictive. You’ll know it when you smell it. If you haven’t smelled a quality vegetable tanned leather, you’re missing out!
