Header About: Veg tan leather is the traditional way of 'tanning' - the process of stabilising the proteins in leather to increase its life. Veg tan leather uses natural plant material in the tanning process and is used on the best quality of leather as it allows the natural beauty of the hide to remain.

Considerations: Veg tan leather ages and burnishes with wear over time which is part of its charm but in 'high traffic' areas this might not look appropriate. Veg tan leather is thicker 2mm+ and in most respects more durable than upholstery leather. Only available in 1/2 hide sizes. We can also supply and work with upholstery hide.
