ABOUT THE MATERIAL
Aarikka leather products made from vegetable tanned leather are a durable, high-quality choice. The ancient craft of vegetable tanning uses only organic materials, such as those originating from the leaves, barks and branches of trees and plants. Vegetable tanned leather preserves its durability better than the more commonly used chrome tanned leather. The use of vegetable tanning with modern production planning and recycling solutions also secures the product with a smaller ecological footprint.
Each vegetable tanned leather product is distinguished by its unique tone and natural surface markings. Small irregularities, furrows and even scars are allowed to show on the surface of vegetable tanned leather because the outer layer of the hide is not removed in vegetable tanning. The patina developed over time and the traces of moments lived are characteristic to the look and charm of vegetable tanned leather goods. Products made from vegetable tanned leather will improve in use and, when cared for properly, keep looking their best for decades to come.
