Characteristics of natural vegetable skin tanned with Sego

The vegetable tanned leather with “Sego” (animal oil) has peculiarities that distinguish it from other vegetable tanned hides. 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 Tanned "Vacchetta" Calf Sides

Calf sides represent the half of a whole calfskin (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.

Vacchetta calf sides, due to their thickness and their shape, are well suited to production of handbags, leather goods and shoes, and saddlery and belts. 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 water-repellent substance).
