Sourcing buffalo and cow leathers from Northern India, the full grain leather used retains its grain and natural markings through vegetable tanning. Each product tells its own story, making it unique and personal. Vegetable tanning uses natural tannings with raw materials obtained from different elements of plants including woods, barks, fruits, fruit pods and leaves. All our vegetable canned leather products can be recycled due to the environmentally friendly nature of our materials and processes.
