The art of vegetable-tanning leather

Vegetable-tanning is the true “chromium-free” method, and does not have harmful chemicals. It is an old-world, artisanal process that takes advantage from the tannic acids naturally found in some plant species, by using the barks, branches, leaves and even some fruits in some specific techniques. Watch the video and learn a little more about this ancient artisanal tanning method.

NATURAL LINE

Our Natural Line leather handbags and accessories are finished to emphasise the vegetable-tanned leather’s true texture and nature. The colour and appearance will gracefully change over time.

Hilla Messenger is made from vegetable tanned leather in Portugal.
