Characteristics of natural vegetable leather tanned with "Sego" animal oil
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.
- Softer temper.
- 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.
