Our Leather

At Leather Zulu we primarily work with vegetable tanned leather. Vegetable tanning is the oldest, most environmentally friendly tanning technique that uses natural tannins extracted from plants and trees (such as tree bark and branches).

This intricate process of leather tanning takes 4-6 weeks (compared to less than a week for chrome tanning) and results in a durable, biodegradable leather that develops a beautiful patina with use and age. 

Please note that actual colours may vary due to the fact that leather is a natural material where markings, uneven colouration and variations in texture are normal and add to the beauty and uniqueness of the product.
