Characteristics of the Oiled "Vachetta" Vegetable Tanned Leather

Vachetta is a vegetable tanned leather that contains "Sego" animal oil that is added during the tanning with a special pressing process, this is why it is so special and has peculiarities that distinguish it from other vegetable tanned hides:

  • Greater wear-resistant.
  • Darker color tending to the light-brown.
  • 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 pressed animal oil given at a separate stage of production makes this leather very reactive and perfect for tooling! 
  • The cost of tanning of the Vacchetta leather greatly affects the price, which is why this skins are considered more valuable for the particular workmanship they have undergone.

"Vacchetta" Oiled Shoulders Veg Tan Leather

vegetable tanned vachetta leather

Shoulders represent the superior half of a whole skin (as you can see in the image below) excluding the belly part. Because of vegetable tanning, this leather looks very natural and is classified as a full grain leather, completely uncovered (without any finishing 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.

Vachetta shoulders, due to their thickness and their shape, are well suited to production of handbags, leather goods and shoes, as well saddlery and belts. This skin is treated with vegetable fats (animal oil) and the special Tuscan tanning method, which makes it softer, little bit darker (tending to a light brown) and partially water repellent (fat is a water-repellent substance).

This is the first leather i bought that was not scraps but actually a higher grade leather and a whole shoulder, and oh my god is that a big difference in quality compared to what i was using before. The leather looks almost too perfect especially for the price. Now i havent used it yet so i will review again later.

The 330 was my fav. items in this shop. It full of oil and has a unique present smell. However, its receipt has been changed in the new batch. It is now drier and harder, smells just like other normal veg tanned leather.

Initially I was irritated because of the amount of blemishes on the hide. This thing looks like the cow spent it's life rolling around on barbed wire. However, this leather is a dream to work with. Cuts, skives, dyes, sands and burnishes like a dream. Overall, wonderful leather, just has a disappointing amount of scarring.
