A split from the flesh side of a piece of leather is sanded in order to produce a nap. Our suede has just the right amount of nap for a refined look and feel. For maximum softness, suede is chrome tanned. The time involved and expense of veg tanned leathers led to the development of chrome tanning in the mid-1800s. Chrome tanning takes about a day in contrast to the one to three-month veg tanning process, making it a more economical choice. Today, about 80-90% of the world’s leather supply is chrome tanned and it is heralded for its stain and water resistance as well as its consistency in color.
