What is vegetable tanned leather and what are its uses?

Vegetable tanned leather is a type of leather that uses vegetable matter, as opposed to chemicals like chrome to tan the hide. This type of tanning is considered one of the oldest methods of leather tanning and is known for its durability and ability to take on a variety of colours. Vegetable tanned leather is most commonly used in the
production of high-end leather goods, including shoes, bags, belts, wallets, and even furniture. This leather is often preferred for its ability to age and develop a unique patina over time. Additionally, vegetable tanned leather is considered more eco- friendly than other leather tanning methods, since it does not use synthetic
chemicals or dyes.
