SLG Design love "Leather"

Generally leather is divided into 2 types depending on tanning process.

- Vegetable leather

It is tanned with natural sources such as tannins. It actually improves with age and develops a patina.
This is one of the characteristics of vegetable leather which is called as “aging” - Traces of user’s life!

- Chrome leather

It is processed with chromium sulfate.
Its process is much quicker and it has great color formation.
 
We select well both leathers according to each design.
