PRO GRIP stirrups leathers, a vegetal leather
Most of time heavy metals such as chromium are used in the manufacturing of leathers. These harmful products are often discharged by the tanneries to nearby rivers, causing serious pollution of water and soil. Vegetal leather is tanned … with active vegetal components.
Vegetal tanned leather is friendlier to the environment and is also less harmful to the health of those who produce it and the end users’. Vegetal tanned leather does not trigger allergies. Vegetal tanning is used particularly for orthopedics, for saddles and horse tacks (horses can also be allergic!). And you will often find some in the lining of your shoes.
Vegetal tanned leather has natural shades with deeper and more nuanced hues. It has a distinctive identity with its warmer feel and differences from skin to skin. This leather will patina over time and improve as a good wine!
