Our leather goods are made only of the highest quality full-grain vegetable tanned leathers. We do not use corrected-grain or other altered leather. All of our leather is intended to show wear and acquire a patina with age and use. Cosmetic wear that does not affect the structural integrity of the item is to be expected -- this is not a defect.
We don't have the patience for high-maintenance bags, so we make sure ours are easy to care for. See all of our care information at our Leather / Care page.
Oh yes! We only use the finest, full grain vegetable tanned cowhide from reputable tanneries.
Vegetable tanned leather refers to the tannage, or method of tanning the cowhide into leather. It’s called “vegetable” because of the natural tannins used in the tanning process like tree bark. Vegetable tanning or veg tan, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the oldest methods of tanning and has been around for centuries. It is costlier and takes longer than the more common chrome tanning. As a result, less than 10% of the world's leather is tanned this way today.
Firstly, veg tan leather is more environmentally sustainable than chrome tanning. The chrome tanning process results in solid and liquid wastes that contain leftover chromium which is toxic to the artisans tanning the leather and toxic to the surrounding environment.
Secondly, vegetable tanning results in a leather with more body and character that tends to age better and to develop a rich patina over time. It has that classic leather smell free from chemical contaminants.
In short, vegetable tanned leather is a more environmentally sustainable and just all around better suited for our heritage-quality bags.
No! Vegan leather is not leather at all, but rather a material that mimics leather. It is usually a synthetic made using PVC or other plastics. These are extremely harmful to the environment both in their production and over the hundreds of years that they take to break down, leaching toxins into the soil and becoming microplastics ingested by animals.
Vegetable tanned leather, on the other hand, is cowhide that is a byproduct of the meat industry, treated with natural tannins. When its useful life is over, it can biodegrade into the soil.
