What is vegetable tanned leather?
Vegetable - or "veg-tanned" leather as you'll hear it called by those in the industry - is treated with the barks of trees as opposed to chrome tanning, which uses soluble chromium sulfate.
Tanning hide creates leather by altering its protein structure, making it more durable and less susceptible to decomposition, and sometimes colouring it.
A number of finishes and textures can be achieved from sturdy and strong to soft for furniture to that buttery creaminess quality we love in fine accessories.
What is the best leather for wallets and cases?
The best leather usually depends on where the hide is taken from and what its purpose is. For wallets one should look for 5 oz, or 3 oz for a mini-wallet or card case. This weight reference is a guide to the thickness of the leather. 1 ounce equals 1/64 of an inch thickness. The below infographic courtesy of Portland Leather Co. illustrates the different weights required for various projects.
Of course, being a natural product, every leather grain is visually different as well as different to the touch.
For this reason, leather is usually graded as it is selected and sorted and this will reflect in the price of your finished item as does the skill of the craftsperson and the time they take to make the product.
