How Vegetable-tanned leather is made
Before starting the tanning process, the hides have to go through the beamhouse treatment. This term is derived from the beams where hides are dried, de-haired, and cleaned.
The hides will be treated with natural tannins comprising of tree barks, leaves, or plant oils, to stabilize the protein structure of the skin. Great care is needed to ensure the hides get full absorption.
Dyeing and Finishing
The tanned leather are then dyed with rich colours. Conditioning oils and waxes are applied on the leather to give astounding finishes and enhance its durability. Finally, the dyed leather is ironed and staked to soften it further.

What is Patina?
Patina is a unique and beautiful characteristic of genuine leather marked by the gradual and natural darkening of vegetable-tanned leather over time with use and exposure.
No patina is the same, making each Barnns product truly unique and personal to every user. Patina is especially prominent in vegetable-tanned leather, which is a traditional method of tanning leather dating back to approximately 6000 BCE.
