Additional Details

When you take a close look at this veg tan strap leather, you’ll notice a subtle open grain that helps you attain greater depth in your tooling, stamping and carving for details that will seem to leap off your finished work. This leather also molds like a dream and showcases a natural color that’s beautiful as is or can be dyed and oiled to achieve the look you desire. Veg tanned without any harsh chemicals, this leather comes from our friends at Hermann Oak®, a tannery that has over a century of experience producing the finest leather. Perfect for a wide range of leather work projects.


Veg tanned the old-fashioned way using a tightly-controlled process that utilizes tree bark and other natural tannins, this leather is prized for both its beauty and its workability. On average, veg tanned hides undergo a one to three-month process that’s reflected in the beauty, workability and cost of the final product.
