The utmost respect for leather.
Now this is a serious topic.
Leather deserves respect.
Today, leather is produced in many parts of the world and used in many garments and accessories.
Leather has become mainstream and as all mainstream articles, it has lost its exellence along the way. In order to make leather more readily available to manufacturers, it has become normal to tan it with cheap chemicals (chromes) and spray paint.
At Ruitertassen, we have maintained true tanning, the old fashion way. The result is a signature leather that looks like no other.
Tanned with vegetable extracts for weeks, dried naturally and dyed in mechanical drums.
We believe leather is and should remain a noble material. It is the most charismatic fabric when treated with respect.
