Vachetta leather is a premium cowhide leather with a buttery soft appearance. Our Vachetta leather is sourced from a tannery in Tuscany dedicated to the ancient and artisan craft of vegetable tanned leather which uses all natural tannins from the barks of trees to colour and treat the leather. Vachetta leather will absorb the traces of wear developing a beautiful patina. Vegetable-tanned leather does not contain any toxic substance harmful to man and is highly tolerable for those who suffer from metal related allergies.
Vachetta is an untreated and unprotected leather. Do not use any solutions or treatments on this leather. Its beauty is in its ability to darken over time and develop a beautiful patina. You may use a wax free leather condition to prevent the leather from drying up.
