We work closely with our tanneries to ensure our water buffalo hides are tanned to our high standards. Chrome tanning yields consistent color and grade and offers excellent value. Chrome tanning takes about one to three days as opposed to the one-to-three-month veg tanning process, making it an economical choice.
