The oldest method used for tanning hides and skins is vegetable tanned, commonly known as veg tan.

This is a tannage using the tannin extracted from the bark of plants and trees. 
 

The vegetable tannin has the effect of filling the leather and creating a firm, full feeling to the tanned dried hide.

The characteristic colour of natural veg tanned leather depends on what type of tannin is used. The colours will range from a warm blonde to a dark brown.

Veg tan leather will develop a beautiful patina over time with everyday environmental exposure and product use.
