Each and every Oppermann piece is made from vegetable tanned leather, but only 5% of all leather worldwide is made in this way. As opposed to the chemical chrome-tanned leathers dominating the market, vegetable tanning is an ancient craft that tans the leather in wooden drums, using natural ingredients such as bark and plant extracts. It’s an expensive and time-consuming method, but the result is a leather unsurpassed in its beauty, touch and durability. And as it’s completely natural, it’s the most environmentally friendly method there is. This time-honoured method provides distinctly unique leathers that retain natural flaws and markings, ensuring that every bag conserves its character and ages in the most graceful way.
