veg tan leather shoulders

Vegetable tanned leather is distinguished from the others by its very natural appearance that skin keeps at the end of this treatment. This process consists of putting the hides inside rotating drums where it gets in contact with a mixture of water and tannins (vegetable substances derived from trees). The appearance of the skin due to the vegetable tanning is extremely natural, leaving its signs and characteristics intact that make it a unique leather, different from any other. This particular aspect makes tanned leather in high demand and used in fashion. Vegetable leathers can be natural (natural color of the tannins) or colored (with specific dyes). 

Square shoulders are one of our favorite vegetable-tanned products. This part of leather lends itself particularly well to production of bags and belts due to its square shape which avoids to waste contours of the surface (as is the case for non-square shoulders). It is also used for many other accessories and leather goods.

Finally, a feature that makes this skin so different from any other is the so-called wrinkle that is formed at the center of shoulder. Although an unskilled eye can see it as a defect, it gives more personality to the finished product. This leather is also very suitable for tooling.

Smells very bad, like mold

Comment from BuyLeatherOnline the 30/01/2023
Hello, thanks for the feedback. The veg tan leather has a typical different smell compared to normal chrome tanned leather, but it is a normal and appreciated feature. These skins are produced every month by us and all lots are new and fresh so we suppose it is just a personal taste as we never received a report atout the smell. Thank you
