Vegetable tanning refers to leather that is tanned with oak and spruce bark. Also quebracho , tara pods , olive leaves , rhubarb roots or mimosa are common. These substances are placed in a pit along with the skins and hides. As these tannins are derived from plants, the leather is called vegetable-tanned leather. Also the term "natural leather" is used.
Chrome tanning uses a solution of chemicals, acids, and salts including chromium sulfate to tan the hide. In , about 24 million tons of chromium was produced. Worldwide approximately , tons of chromium tannins are produced per year. The increasing requirements of producing safer chrome leathers in a sustainable way have led Silvateam to develop an innovative hybrid tannage using a combination of chrome salts and Blancotan CAT that allows the customer to produce a new environmental friendly wet blue.
Leather Manufacture with Wattle Tannins
Plant Polyphenols pp Cite as. Vegetable extract production in general has declined over the years as a result of decreased demand for vegetable-tanned leather. The use of wattle mimosa extract, however, has not been as adversely affected as has other extracts due to the advantages that wattle extract has in leather manufacture. Such properties as rapid tannin penetration, low salts content, and high solubility of wattle extract are shown to be ideal for traditional pit tanning operations and the Liritan tanning system. The last combination tannage is a chrome-free process and has been found to work best if carried out in two stages, initial wattle tanning, then aluminum sulphate retanning. Increasing the pH in subsequent basifying and neutralizing processes results in increased tannin aluminum complexation and hence crosslinking as measured by the hydrothermal stability of the mimosa-alum tanned leather. The properties of a number of specialty wattle based products are also noted, viz. These properties are discussed in relation to the theory and mechanism of wattle tanning. Unable to display preview.

Why is this method so unsustainable and how does it actually compare to the natural method of vegetable tanning? Let's dive in and find out! The transformation of an animal skin into a piece of leather is primarily achieved by removing water molecules from the collagen of the skin, which is the protein that the skin consists of. However when drawing out the the skin might get ruined, as it gets dry and inflexible.
The use of animal skins dates back to the Stone Age, presumably as tarpaulins , protective clothing or for the manufacture of belts , harnesses , bags and containers. Animal skins were dried , fats were incorporated into the leather to make them softer and waterproof and they were possibly smoked to preserve the result. But this type of preservation was not real tanning. Tanning by ancient methods was indeed extremely foul- smelling and hence most tanneries were situated in the outskirts of towns. The use of urine and animal faeces, combined with the smell of decaying flesh due to the absence of conservation options was what made ancient tanneries so odoriferous and the profession of tanner unpopular.
