The search for an eco-friendly alternative to the conventional chrome tanning was the starting point for the development of the sustainable Rhabarberleder project (rhubarb tanned leather).
«We have been seeking the right solution intensely for several years. We tested various rhubarb genotypes to verify their suitability, optimising their cultivation needs and developing an innovative tannin extract», says the company.
Today’s result is a vegetable-tanned leather that meets the highest standards of quality, sustainability and versatility.
A production cycle entirely made in Germany, from the cultivation of rhubarb biomass to the extraction of tannins, from the origin of raw hides to the tanning and finishing process.
Thanks to its excellent breathability, anallergicity, particularly pleasant touch and the comfort that comes with it, Rhabarberleder is ideal for fashion and accessory collections.
