The process takes time, skilled artisanship, and thus costs more compared to mass-production chemical tanning. The vegetable tanning produces durable, flexible leather with unique texture and characteristics that further develop with use and time. The natural leather feel, texture, and characteristics cannot be replicated through chemical tanning.
