A NOTE ABOUT VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHER

Vegetable tanning hides is an old-world, artisanal process that takes advantage of the tannic acids naturally found in various plant species. It produces hides with rich, warm, and uniquely varie­gated tones. Vegetable tanned leather also has the unique ability to mold to the owners habits over time much like raw denim. It will darken and develop a patina over time with expo­sure to natural elements. When exposed to water, the leather may form a slightly dappled surface that will remain after the leather dries. When exposed to the sun, the leather will get slowly darker. It will also absorb oils. In our opinion, these changes are not defects but rather reflec­tive of the indi­vidual char­acter and history of the piece that emerges over time.

Small markings and variations in the surface of the leather are also common on our products since we use as much of each leather hide as possible. We believe these markings are just another addition to the unique character of each bag. In contrast, large fashion companies use only the most uniform parts of each hide, leaving large amounts of leather scrap as waste.
