Our products are made from quality leather that is vegetable tanned in America and sourced from North America. We care about our community and our environment. Because of this, we have chosen to source our leather from tanneries in the USA that have higher restrictions on work conditions and environmental impact. Vegetable tanned leather is extremely less impactful on the environment. Chrome tan leather contains heavy metals and chemicals that deteriorate the water table.
Veg vs. Chrome
After learning this we choose to purchase vegetable tanned leathers which age naturally beautiful overtime giving our products the classic patina glow like you see on any good leather product. This process happens naturally with vegetable tan leathers, Chrome tan leathers do not age as well at all and can feel plastic and fake to the hand.
