The vegetable tanning that we apply gives leather a special appearance that stays bright and fresh and does not lose value with the passing of time. The several shadings of colour, the unique scent, the grain and the small marks should be considered as tangible and authentic proof of the quality of our leather. The climate and temperature of some countries with a high humidity rate can affect the vegetable-tanned leather by changing the leather’s aspect and causing whitish spews. Rubbing the leather with a cotton or wool cloth and adding some more natural/vegetable oil when necessary gives it its natural brightness and transparency. Time and wear contribute to exalt the quality of the leather.
