Vegetable Tan Leather
VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHER is tanned using tree bark and various other plants. It comes in various thicknesses and colors. Characterized by its firmness, strength and lack of elasticity, vegetable-tanned leather is used for a variety of purposes, including crafts (e.g., leather carving, leather stamping, etc.), belts, saddles, harnesses, holsters, shoe soles and some luggage. Vegetable-tanned leather features a nice, smooth finish with the color struck through.
