Tanning methods

Chrome in the leather

The vast majority of leathers on the market today are processed using chromium. As of May 1, 2015, European legislation has limited the permitted content of hexavalent chromium to a minimum. Today, therefore, it no longer happens that the skin contains a high proportion of harmful hexavalent chromium, as it used to be before 2015. Most problematic substances are washed out of the leather during production to such an extent that the amount in the skin is subsequently immeasurable or slightly above the detection limit . Colored leathers that we offer in our e-shop are tanned in an ecological mineral way, so-called mineral tanning, uncoloured are vegetable-tanned.
