Ever heard about Vegetable tanned leather?
Vegetable-tanned leather is a genuine leather that shows its unique wear over time, depending on daily usage. It is absolutely natural, in other words, there is no artificial surface finished. In the coloring process, there is no pigment used to conceal natural defects in the leather, which is why some scratches, scars, and imperfections may be visible. This is normal and adds a unique character and is not to be seen as a defect.
The surface will transform over time. It will not remain pristine and polished. Abrasions will occur. In consequence of exposure to the sun, some natural colorways such as TAN color will gently darken over time.
