Viva's bags are all made from vegetable tanned leather, which has special characteristics. Vegetable tanning is a chromium-free method, and therefore does not contain harmful chemicals. Tannins found in nature from tree bark, wood, leaves, fruits, and roots are used in producing vegetable tanned leather. This gives it its natural smell and look.
We have chosen vegetable tanned leather because of its high quality, durability, strength and natural look. Its handmade imperfections make for a unique and genuine aesthetic. Vegetable tanned leather is far stronger than the majority of synthetic materials and therefore can last a lifetime.
Leather is a natural material, which changes over time and acquires a unique patina with use and will become slightly darker over time.
