Vegetable-tanned leather is processed by hand with natural and plant-based extracts, not mass-produced in factories like other leathers. Rather than coloring leather with chromium sulfate and acids, vegetable tanned leather is tanned using tree bark. The end result is a symbol of quality from the natural tanning process. Every wallet we produce has a unique look. Only the best quality hides are used to ensure maximum durability and strength. In fact, most light scratches and nicks can be wiped away. Only 10% of the world's leather is made with the vegetable tanning process.
Daily usage of Italian veg-tan leather creates a unique patina & adds to its beauty and character. Unlike other leathers, it rarely needs to be cleaned. Sunlight, oils from your hand, what you put in your wallet and just day to day usage, determines the uniqueness of your carry.
We use leather which is assembled and cut in San Francisco in a factory that is part of the SFMade Organization. SFMade’s mission is to support vibrant, domestic manufacturing for locally-made products, encouraging entrepreneurship and creating employment opportunities for a diverse local workforce.
