In 1991, under the brand name Chahin Leather, the tannery began to make leather specifically for the horse and saddlery industry. Their traditional pit-drum tanning process utilizes the latest technology and the best hides. In addition to veg tanned, they also produce chrome-vegetable and alum tanned leather.
