Characteristics of natural vegetable skin tanned with Sego

The vegetable tanned leather with “Sego” (animal oil) has peculiarities that distinguish it from tanned leather to natural plant. The tanning process is the same, the difference lies in the fact that animal fat is added at some point of the process. This causes the leather to assume certain characteristics:

  • Greater wear-resistant.
  • Darker color tending to the cognac.
  • If rubbed, this leather usually becomes more shiny and beautiful, this fact is linked with the best wear resistance: the usage and time instead of worsening the skin pulls the best out of it.
  • The cost of tanning of the Sego leather greatly affects the price, which is why this skins are considered more valuable for the particular workmanship they have undergone.

Vegetable Leather: Front Shoulder Oiled (with sego)

vegetable leatherFront shoulder is the upper half of a whole skin (as you can see in the image below). Because of vegetable tanning, this leather looks very natural and its top grain is completely uncovered (without any covering layer). Furthermore, the skin thickness of a vegetable leather is usually greater than other types of tanning, making it perfect for producing goods that require a good tensile strength.
Front shoulder, due to their thickness and their shape, are well suited to production of handbags, leather goods and shoes, and saddlery. On the other side, this leather is less suitable for creation of belts since its non-square shape would result in wasting a part of the leather. This skin is treated with vegetable fats (animal oil), which makes it softer, it gives it a darker color (tending to cognac) and protects it from water ( fat is a hydrophobic substance).
