Vegetable-tanned leather
A NATURAL LEATHER

Combined with raffia, the leather accentuates several pieces in our collection.

Tanning has the advantage of transforming animal skins into rot-proof leather. Although mineral tanning, based on chromium salt, is the most widespread process globally, we prefer to resort to vegetable tanning without the slightest hesitation.

Directly inspired by nature, vegetable tanning was the first technique used by man. It uses vegetable tannins from plants. And although it requires much more patience, it offers many advantages.

Vegetable-tanned leather
AN ECO-FRIENDLY MATERIAL 
"While being part of our environmental approach, vegetable tanning gives a specific leather with particularities faithful to our values."

First off, vegetable tanning guarantees the health safety of the craftsmen but also of the consumers.

Secondly, it enriches the leather. Thus, the leather is firmer and more solid; it is characterized by a better holding and absorption of moisture. The dyeing, concocted by hand, gives depth and nuance to the color with a heterogeneous rendering.

 

Vegetable-tanned leather
A UNIQUE FINISH

The dye reveals the small marks and defects that reflect the animal's life and give the skin its distinctive beauty. By oxidizing under the effect of light, the vegetable tannins embellish the leather and give it a nice patina.

"In this way, we reinforce the unique spirit of our creations while guaranteeing a fully GREEN feel."
