Leather, one of mankind's oldest natural resouces, is one of the foremost gifts to man from Mother Nature. Without it man might not have survived. Vivid evidence of its outstanding importance dates back across the centuries of civilization to the Roman Empire and beyond. Modern archaeologists have uncovered leather articles and artefacts from cultures dating back over 33 centuries, often found to be in an excellent state of preservation

Man's dependency and appreciation of leather led to the

hand crafting of a whole host of useful products, from crude protective footwear to the creation of unbelievably beautiful articles of great utility. Human beings have reaped a great harvest of benefit and pleasure from leather, a harvest which fortunately for us continues to this day.

The history of leather is closely merged with the progress of mankind. The ancient cave dwellers counted leather as one of their most valuable assets. With the skins of animals they were able to fashion basic protective footwear which permitted them to range far and wide in search of food.With leather vessels in which to carry water, he was no longer isolated, no longer limited to living near a lake of stream. Leather also provided clothing, armour and even shelter for early civilisations.

Leather, one of mankind's oldest natural resouces, is one of the Animal skins used by prehistoric man deteriorated rapidly, drying out, becoming stiff and unmanageable ..

Gradually artisans learned to scrape off the flesh residue from the underside of the skins and stretch the skins in the sun to dry. To soften the dried skins, they pounded them with stones and made them softer still by chewing the skins.

These craftsman eventually discovered that the juices from crushed tree bark had a very preservative effect upon dried animal skins.

To improve on this, they would bury animal skins in a deep earthen vat with layers of finely crushed bark between them. The vat would be saturated with water and closed off for six months. The leather thus crudely 'Tanned' would last almost indefinitely. This process provided the perfect material for a multitude of uses - VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER.
