Leather is one of the earliest crafts, dating back thousands of years. The hides and skins come from many parts of the world to be used in realizing car interiors, sofas and armchairs. To keep it always smooth and nice, you have to take care of it.

    ben kerr 5 лет назад I used to work in both a finishing and  a wet end tannery, i was working on the maintenance, not direcctly on production.this video brings back some memories, but you missed out the most notable thing in any tannery, especially for a first time visitor,  the smell.

  • Mark Kent
    Mark Kent Год назад In the video the leather is split in half once, however, for purses, shoes, wallets and other fine leather creations, it is split one or two more times to make very thin but sturdy leather products.

    serundipity 6 лет назад Having music play in the background, while making the video more pleasant for those who have no or little interest in learning, make it more difficult for those of us interested in the subject.
