Characteristics of natural vegetable leather tanned with "sego" animal oil (Oiled Vachetta)
The vegetable tanned leather with “Sego” (animal oil) has peculiarities that distinguish it from normal veg tan leather. 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, like:
- Greater wear-resistant
- Softer tamper
- Darker color
- 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
Peculiarities of vegetable tanned oiled (with sego) front shoulder leather
Front shoulder is the upper half of a whole skin. Thanks to 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, 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 and it gives it a darker color (tending to cognac) and protects it from water because fat is a hydrophobic substance.
