Vegetable tanned leather
Our artisan makers choose a high grade leather, that they treat with natural vegetable pigments, making a shoe that’s softer & kinder to your skin.
A traditional process of time and nature
Vegetable tanning is a traditional method of tanning leather that involves using natural tannin derived from plants to make the colour.
Natural tannin extracted from plants like oak, Quebecois, and mimosa are applied to the hide, and it's left to soak in the solution for several weeks.
The natural leather is conditioned with natural oils and fats to make it super soft and ready for use.
The process of vegetable tanning is more time consuming than other chemical tanning methods, but it produces a naturally breathable leather that ages with beauty and comfort.
