Vegetable Tanned Leather: Square shoulder 

vegetable tanned leatherVegetable 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 immersing hides inside of rotating drums where it gets in contact with a mixture of water and tannins (vegetable substance 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 skin can be natural colored ( natural color of the mantle ) or colored (that its surface remain uncovered after 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 upholstery 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.
