Formed leather, tanned or partially tanned

Our formed leather is obtained from southern German cattle and 100% vegetable tanned. This means that raw material is selected that exhibits a very uniform thickness. Tanning is strictly monitored, meaning we can guarantee that it is free of any toxins. Lightfastness cannot be guaranteed in the case of purely vegetable tanning. This results in a patina after a certain amount of time that makes each piece unique. However, the leather is a durable and high-quality product that remains kind to the skin. The expression “partially tanned” means that the cowhide has not been completely tanned. It therefore has a very stiff and firm quality, similar to parchment leather.

Formed leather is available partially tanned or tanned and is also suitable for knife sheaths!

  • Partially tanned formed leather = the leather is not completely tanned
