Vegetable and Semi-Vegetable Tanned Cowhide Leather

Vegetable tanning is one of the several leather tanning methods. While each offers its own unique advantages, vegetable leather is known for creating leather that is firm and durable. This makes it a great fit for applications that experience more stress and wear than other types of leather.

The Vegetable Tanning Process

Unlike chrome tanned leathers, vegetable tanned cowhide leather is completely free of chromium and other chemicals often used in the tanning process. Vegetable tanning uses naturally derived organic materials, such as tree bark, leaves, and branches. The resulting colors are typically similar to those found in nature, such as yellows, reds, and browns.
