        SUSTAINABLE LEATHER HIDES FOR SALE

        We source our sustainable veg tanned leather hides from the manufacturing and end-of-season leftovers of accessory brands.

        The stock comes from Italian factories that manufacture premium international brands such as Bottega Veneta, YSL, Gucci, Prada, and more. 

        All our vegetable tanned leathers come from the certified tanneries of the Tuscan leather district in Italy.

        WHAT IS VEGETABLE TANNING?

        Vegetable tanning is a traditional leather tanning process that uses natural tannins found in plant materials such as tree bark, leaves, and roots. This method has been practiced for centuries and is known for producing the highest-quality and most durable leather.

        Vegetable tanned leather is also more expensive than chrome tanned leather because vegetable tanning is a time-consuming process, often taking several weeks to complete.

        Leather produced through vegetable tanning is firm and can develop a rich patina over time, enhancing its natural beauty and uniqueness. The natural tannins give the leather a range of warm, earthy colors, which can darken and change with use and exposure to light.

        This type of leather is commonly used for high-quality products such as luxury belts, wallets, shoes, bags and saddlery, where durability and aesthetic appeal are equally important.

        Our vegetable-tanned leathers for sale are sourced from the Tuscan leather district in Italy and come from LWG and/or Genuine Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium certified tanneries.
