Old World Veg-Tan Belly
Italy is known for producing some exquisite leathers. You must see these beautiful veg tanned cowhides. Long traditions of old school tanning methods have been passed down from several generations at this established tannery, known for producing gorgeous veg tanned leather for over 40 years. Their special tanning process involves using drums made from iroko wood, a hardwood tree from Africa, and a combination of extracts/tannins developed over the years using the bark of quebracho, chestnut and mimosa trees. The leather is hand finished, which brings out the natural color and unique characteristics of this fine leather. This is an excellent choice for all kinds of leather goods that require a lighter weight cowhide. This leather molds, tools and accepts finishes extremely well.
