Do you know why Tuscany leather is the best in the world for your outdoor gear? The short answer is that the Tuscans, quite frankly, are the best and the most skilled leather craftsmen. There is no other area in the world that can match the quality, and this is largely due to the very skilled artisans, the quality hides used in their products, and their dye-making process.
One of the reasons Tuscany leather hides are superior to others is that they use all-natural items such as vegetable and plant-based extracts to dye their leather and this results in a much stronger and longer-lasting leather product. This natural process (vegetable tanning) takes much longer to complete as it is mostly done by hand which can take as long as two months.
Unlike Tuscany leather, almost 90% of the world’s leather outdoor gear is tanned by chrome (mineral tanning). Large mass-market factory-produced products, often use this chrome chemical-based process, to dye their hides. Chrome is a solution that is mixed with chemicals, acids, and salts (chromium sulfate). Large scale factories prefer this method as it is a shorter and less costly leather tanning process than vegetable tanning. It also costs a lot less, however, the lower quality is readily apparent as well.
