To make something out of leather, it requires specialized equipment and experience from the craftsmen.

highlights of the Difference between Full Grain Leather vs. Genuine Leather vs. Vintage Leather.


How is Crafting Process?


Crafting a leather product requires certain steps and stages to obtain a product of high quality without defects.

The inclusive and time-taking development process consists in-

tanning, curing, fleshing, soaking, painting, liming, etc.

But on condition of having a strong infrastructure, adequate sanitation facilities, and an efficient water disposal system.

Keep in mind that handmade leather products are considered more luxurious and valuable.

Since they require craftsmanship, very high precision, and great experience.


How is Tanning made?


New leather is often light colored because it hasn't been processed or tanned.

Tanning is a complex process of treating the skins and hides of animals to produce leather.

It begins by soaking the hide in a solution that helps to prevent it from decay and makes it water resistant.

There are no chemicals used in the process and it involves five general components:

preparatory stages, tanning, liquor preparation, tanning itself, dyeing and finishing.

Leather tanning isn't a one-step process, but rather a series of treatments.
