Vegetable tanned natural bellies: Vachetta leather (not oiled)

Vegetable tanned natural bellies: Vachetta leather

Vegetable leather bellies require different processing than other leather parts (single or double butt, front shoulder, etc.) because they have a different shape, different top grain and a different thickness. Consequently, bellies are cut before tanning process and immersed in the drums separately. Generally leather bellies have a surface area ranging from 0.5 to 1 square meter, a length from 2 to 2.50 meters and an average width of 40 cm.

Thanks to these features, bellies are very well suitable to production of sandals and leather goods in general. Sometimes they can also be used to achieve belts or objects that require very long lengths, although thickness (1-2 mm on average, 3 mm max) can not be compared to other types of thicker leather (single or double butt, front shoulders). Finally, like any other vegetable tanned leather, they are perfect for tooling. Bellies also have a vegetable-tanned natural color and a medium temper. This leather, like all our products, is carefully selected (first grades) and comes only from the best Italian suppliers.

    I am new to leathercraft and was searching for quality veg tan leather. It was quite frustrating because I could not find the right quality, or quantity, I needed. One fine day, I stumbled upon 'Buyleatheronline.com' and was impressed with the variety of leather on offer. Vacchetta leather interested me most, so, I gave it a try and ordered 'Premium Veg Shoulder' (no.293, dark brown) as well as various 'Vegetable Tanned Vacchetta Leather Bellies' (no.38-1,38-2). The quality of the leather I received is amazing: it's clean, smooth to the touch on both sides, and smells SO GOOD! I am very happy with my first purchase and will definitely buy again.

    These are a bit of a hidden gem. Despite being bellies which can be a bit variable these are excellent quality and a good source of cheap, natural veg tan leather.
