Native European Steer/Young Bull Double Bend (Double-Croupon) slowly Veg-tanned with a mix of our secret antique recipe including Oak, Chesnut, Mimosa and Quebracho tannin extracts.

Vegetable-tanning is the true traditional way of tanning a hide.  Veg-tanning has always been the old-worlds inalienable material for decades.  This artisanal process takes advantage from several tannic acids naturally found in plants, by using the tree barks, branches and leaves.  Its natural appearance has a slight beige color coming from the plant extracts, which changes to a caramel tone with a natural patina over time.  It has the most beautiful smell of nature such as wood and earth.
