Vegetable tanned leather
HUEVO Leather sells handcrafted, hand stitched Vegetable Tanned Leather Goods in Manila.
Vegetable Tanning is a traditional, artisanal process that takes advantage of the tannic acids naturally found in some plants or fruits in some specific techniques.
The result is a kind of leather that has a longer life span, whose character and color changes over time and over use, vs. that of chemically treated leather, like the widely available Genuine Leather.
Also thicker and harder to the touch, it has a certain feel that would make you realize what you've been missing all along.
Be one of the first to carry a Vegetable Tanned Leather item today.
What does handcrafting leather entail?
It entails careful measurement and cutting, careful piercing of the leather. Perfect alignment is needed to make the stitches look as good as it is.
We stitch our leather using waxed thread, which gives off a unique look and texture while also making our leather items stand the test of time.
Take a look at how we finish off the sides, burnished to perfection to achieve a certain character for the leather item.
