Vegetable tanning is an artisanal tradition that the Tuscan tanneries have handed down from generation to generation. The vegetable tanning process is based on the use of tannin, the active ingredient responsible for the transformation of the animal hide into a treated and resistant material. These natural tannin extracts make the vegetable-tanned leather unique and easily distinguishable.
Vegetable-tanned leather is known for developing a beautiful patina as it ages. This natural aging does not compromise its strength or durability but rather enhances its appeal and amplifies its uniqueness. The tannin colors give the leather an unmistakable warm and brilliant shade that becomes more intense with the passing of time.
