Metal-Free

Vegetable tanning, or veg-tan, is a tanning process that uses the tannins found in different kinds of vegetable matter—bark, leaves, fruits, etc.—that is normally used in the creation of footwear, handbags and all kinds of leather goods. This type of tanning is being considered as an eco-friendly alternative to chrome-based tanning which relies on heavy chemicals that may let of contaminated water or fumes that can cause damage to the environment. (Although, it is important to note that most major tanneries in modernized countries use sophisticated water treatment plants, ventilation systems, and other filtration technologies to mitigate, if not eliminate, these issues).
