Leather supplier statement: "This leather is made from fresh raw US hides, tanned in Italy using vegetable tanning style of natural compounds to preserve the leather. This allows a natural look and feels in the hand. We use vegetable dyes and animal fats as well as other natural compounds in this process. Hides are colored using aniline dyes a natural look to color leather that is mostly see-through. Allowing natural characters to be exposed. This article is finished by hand glazed top finish to give a nice and smooth top finish. For best and natural drying we do not use the machine for rapid drying but hang dry this leather to allow natural Harding of the fibers. This is a long process but makes much better leather. Over time this leather will age, patina, and look better every day it is used."
