SCROLL down to bottom to learn about leather types

Vegetable-Tanned 

Produced using natural ingredients for the most environmentally responsible tanning process. Results in better wear and patina over time. Excellent for carving, tools and embossing.

Chrome-Tanned 

Uses chromium sulfate to create soft, subtle leather. Vibrant colours. Mostly used for upholstery, garments and footwear. 

Eco-Tanned 

Environmentally sustainable tanning agents. Usually lighter in colour so also great for dyeing light colours.


Analine

Highest quality. Dyes & finishes that contain no pigment, penetrates all way through. Transparent finish. Used on best quality full grain and top grain leather. 

Pull-Up

Treated with oils and waxes, when pull or stretched the finish is lighter in those areas creating a vintage, worn look.

Pebble Grain

Treated full grain leather with a surface texture that resembles small pebbles.


Semi-Analine

Treated with aniline dye first then a matching pigment layer is used  to even the colour out and give protection.

Drum Dyed

A leather colouring process that dunks leather into a dye and its tumbled in a drum. This allows maximum dye coverage.

Rawhide

Hair has been removed, dried and not tanned. Very tough and stiff unless soaked in water. Used for drum skins, lamps and braiding.


Embossed

The surface of the leather has been stamped with a pattern to create an overall embossed look such as animal skin. 

Nubuck

Suede made from top grain that is sanded and buffed. More durable and thicker than suede with a finer grain.

Distressed/Antique

Dyed with a dark colour over a light colour to create highlights. Artificial ageing with additions of natural markings on the hide.
