Characteristics of natural vegetable leather tanned with Sego Oil

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 Tanned Leather: Heavy dorsal for bridles

vegetable leather for bridles

This type of leather is very special as its production is very difficult and the raw material is scarce. Only the best heavy European bull can be used to make this particular product. The specific tanning method used, belonging to the ancient Tuscan tradition, enhances the natural characteristics of the leather and offers a superior quality of the fibers.

This particular tanning method, designed specifically for the bridles, ensures that the leather is not too elastic and does not stretch or deform while riding.

Lots of scars, tears, inconsistencies, etc.

Comment from BuyLeatherOnline the 20/03/2023
Hello Jeremy, thanks for the order and feedback, yes this item actually is very natural and have some imperfections, this is due to the high thickness and oil tanning that put in evidence even the minimal sign. Indeed this item is rated as 2° grade and in the tech sheet the natural signs and irregularities are mentioned. We are Changing the raw materials for future productions to improve this aspect. Thanks
