Scent of leather

Scent of leather

 

Ever noticed that authentic leather has a distinct aroma that is akin to fresh cut wood?

This distinctive aroma of authentic leather is indeed a notable characteristic that adds to its appeal. This scent is imparted to hides during the vegetable tanning process when the raw hide is tanned for weeks in tannins derived from natural barks and woods from trees.The extended duration of this process, which can take weeks, allows the leather to absorb the natural aroma of the tannins. This scent becomes a distinctive and enduring feature of the leather. 

In contrast, aniline or chromium-tanned leather, which is tanned using synthetic chemicals, often lacks the natural aroma associated with vegetable-tanned leather. Instead, it may carry a chemical smell, a characteristic of the tanning agents used in the process.

The olfactory aspect of leather adds an extra sensory dimension to the appreciation of leather goods. It's fascinating how different tanning processes can result in distinct scents, further emphasizing the craftsmanship and natural origins of the material. To be convinced about the authenticity of leather used by Davarg, and you need to do is to smell it, and you will know the difference.
