Vegetable tanned salmon leather
- story by MaterialDistrict
This vegetable tanned salmon leather is called Mimosa, named after the tree from which the bark is used for the tanning is derived.
As of now, there is one base colour available for the vegetable tanned leather: light brown, the colour achieved by using only Mimosa bark. However, through various finishes a lot of colour/hue variations can be achieved.
The leather offers a certain kind of stiffness and is less flexible than regular salmon leather. The vegetable tanned leather can be used for furniture design, interior design, and car seats (basically all high-wear areas), in addition to bag and jewellery design.
