Tochigi Leather is called “a rarity in the world” because it uses only natural vegetable tanning. The factory’s 160 pits are filled with high-quality tanning made from Brazilian mimosa. Leather is dipped into the pits from the lowest tanning concentration to the highest, so the tanning slowly and naturally permeates over time.
