Environmentally sound leather tanning

Post by Bram van Munster » Wed Feb 20, 2019 8:14 am

No matter your preferences on tanning or the result you get, there are a LOT of different ways.
Did you know there are ways to not just tan a hide but also make proper leather with using natural materials ONLY???

I've found this book a while back and posted it here because many people really don't like working with toxic chemicals. It makes them uncomfortable and sought for a way out of that. They asked me how the Native American tribes used to make their leather. The book describes that in detail in 83 pages of knowledge!

Now you can make leather without having to put yourself at risk, without destroying the environment, but with smooth leather that is either an even color or decorated!
Also: there is a way to calculate if you'll ever make a profit from all the work you have to put in it. (Spoiler: probably not)
