Vegetable tanned calf

 
As its name says, this is a full grain aniline leather tanned with vegetable extracts. It is the most natural looking leather, a bit thicker and a little harder. It has no surface coating of polymer and pigments, but it gives you a unique aspect and a really soft touch.

Like wine, the older the better, as your item gets older it will gain stains, scratches and patina, but do not worry, it is the normal ageing process. Differences in tone, shading, gradation, and the possible alterations of the material are to be regarded as a sign of quality.

Please, keep your vegetable tanned calf item away from water. It is a dry type of leather that will absorb water and change its original colour and become harder. If it happens to get your item wet, quickly spread the liquid evenly onto the whole item. As a precaution, treat your vegetable tanned calf leather with a special waterproof spray and avoid any problems with humidity.

No care products are recommended for this type of leather during the first several years. To clean your item, apply glycerine soap or water with a soft cotton cloth. But make sure not to soak the leather as it is not stable in water. If you want to remove any kind of stains, be sure to apply carefully chosen care product onto the whole surface of your item. If you treat just the stain itself, it might become larger.

Vegetable tanned calf (natural colour)

 
Is a full grain aniline leather that was tanned with vegetable extracts. It is thicker and more rigid type of leather, but it is the most natural looking leather as it has not been protected by a surface coating of polymer and pigments. It gives your item a unique aspect and touch.

Age and use will give your vegetable tanned calf (natural colour) a beautiful patina. It will darken from very light beige to a dark brown chocolate over the years.

Avoid any contact with liquids as vegetable tanned is a dry type of leather that will easily absorb them. If it happens anyway, dry your item immediately by spreading the water out evenly. To avoid any problem with humidity, you can treat your vegetable tanned calf leather with a special waterproof spray.

This kind of leather age with a special patina, that is why no care products are recommended during the first years. Easy cleaning requires glycerine soap, water and a soft cotton cloth.
