The vegetable tanning leather is an old process of leather tanning, indeed the first historical mentions date back to prehistoric times. When we speak about vegetable tanning we have to focus on TANNIN, the main character, a natural product extracted from plants. The tannin is found in the wood of quebracho and chestnut consequently the global tanning industry mixing them with water develops the vegetable tanning. In the last years, the vegetable tanning has become very famous a kind of trend to follow. At luxuryleather we consume a large quantity of vegetable leather cause it respects the environment with various advantages, such as :
- fights against the bacteria
- gives resistance
- emphasising the natural character
- makes a unique product
A secret, the vegetable tanning.
Every tannery or tanner keeps tanning recipe secretly, in every case none of them will ever tell you what percentage of quebracho or water or chestnut is using in the preparation of the vegetable tanning. The recipe on how to dye skins is a SECRET, there is a basic scheme but then comes the tanning skills and every tannery uses a different process. Luxuryleather is a sustainable factory, our vegetable tanning is unique cause different from tannery to tannery.
Products made by vegetable tanning.
Once leather is vegetable, the fashion system or factories like us use these skins to make bags, small leather goods or leather garments. When we use a vegetable leather immediately we notice a direct contact to the Nature, it seems to walk in the woods thanks to the smell of tannin that leather emanates. It is a kind of return to the past, when you touch a bag or a garment made in a vegetable way, you feel a naturality, a resistance, a transparency than no other tanning can recreate. Luxuryleather offers vegetable tanning to the customers who are looking for a high-quality product, who needs a unique craftsmanship, always different and always true to itself.
Tannin versus bacteria.
In conclusion, every day our lives meet multiple bacteria. If for a while you start thinking how many times we open and reclose our bags, we touch our mobile and multiple attitudes that expose us to virus attacks, immediately understood we are affected by bacteria. Using a leather product (bag, handbag, mobile cover, etc) made by vegetable tanning it means we are protected from these bacterias attacks. Indeed TANNIN who is inside leather fibres impedes the transmission of the virus, it acts as a shield for transmission. So in addition to being a unique product, you have a product antibacterial very current at the time of CORONAVIRUS.
