The trip of our products: From their origins…

At Highonleather, skilled craftsmanship is behind the creation of our hand crafted leather bags and accessories. Crafted with impeccable high quality to ensure customer satisfaction while staying environmentally friendly.

We take several steps to ensure our leather bags are 100% Eco-friendly while also ensuring they are exquisitely hand made by artisans making use of traditional methods.

The handbags created by us are Eco-friendly and crafted using a ‘Vegetable Tanning’ process. This type of traditional tanning gives natural leather its exclusive natural features, without the usage of chemicals!

Durable Leather Bags

It relates to the usage of ‘Tannin’ - an astringent, bitter plant mixture that binds proteins in conceal (animalskin) and also coats them. This method also results in our bags being much less water-soluble and more resistant to bacterial assault.

Benefits of Vegetable Tanned leather items:

  1. Vegetable tanning is environmental-friendly as all of the items used to create the products are completely recyclable.
  2. Given that vegetable tanning is a conventional method, the majority of tanneries possess tradesmen who are extremely experienced handcrafting leather products and dyeing the leather.
  3. Shades that vegetable-tanned items generate are rich and appear natural.

Let’s move through the process and also learn how our leather products enter into life:

Phase 1:

The animal leather skin is cleansed of any unnecessary hair and also tanned for 30-45 days utilizing the vegetable tanning technique. Thereafter, the skin is dried under the sun.

Phase 2:

The dried out leather-based skin is cut into items of different style and form, based on the shape of the item. A top quality canvas is pasted on the interior side to give strength and also durability.

To ensure additional strength and durability, every bag is finished with double stitching and guarantees the handbag looks stunning.

Phase 3:

The numerous pieces are stitched into a handbag utilizing high quality string. For tough fittings, we make use of brass rivets, buckles and buttons and use best-quality zippers.

Phase 4:

Lastly, each handbag is coated with vegetable oil to obtain the right color and  make our bag water resistant. The handbag is now ready to sell.
