About Vegetable Tanned Leather
Whether designing pieces to sell or for your own personal use, vegetable tanned leather is the foundation of a beautiful creation. This centuries-old tanning process uses natural tannins from plants, is environmentally friendly, and produces wonderfully natural colors. Vegetable tanned leather is also more valuable than chrome tanned leather, so the resultant pieces sell at a higher price. Lambskin leather is soft and supple yet strong, perfect for designing jackets, shoes, and handbags. Vegetable tanning creates leather that is more water resistant than other leathers, a plus when creating fashion items. A leather belt blank is ready for dyeing, tooling, and embossing. Remember to include your favorite belt buckle on the finished piece. These belt blanks keep their color and luster with age, another plus of vegetable tanning, and are ideal for Western wear. Turn leather scraps into any number of items, from bookmarks to dog collars. Whatever your imagination conjures up, you can create it. Vegetable tanned scrap leather lots are available among the vast inventory on eBay in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses, ready for your next project.
