Veg. Tanned Leather In Spain

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone have any suggestion on where to get veg. tanned leather in spain.. I´m sure there are a lot and they have tanneries, but so far I´m out of luck.. I have contacted a few companies in Igualada, which is famous for their leather, but the places I have found, doesn't sell veg. tanned leather..

I´m mostly interested in Barcelona, Catalonia area, but anywhere goes.. :-)

Hi

This guy sells veg tan mail order, he's in Oviedo Asturias http://www.joman.net/presentacion.htm he also stocks Fiebing Pro Oil dyes at a reasonable price.

To be honest I've not been too satisfied with the quality of the veg tan I've found here in Spain. I've also bought from Tandy in Jerez and from

another small shop in Elda Alicante.

I now order mine from the UK and swallow the shipping costs. At least the quality of the leather is where I want it to be.

Cheers

Thanks for your reply "El Zipster" :-)

It´s a start.. I´m a little sceptical oredering leather online.. I have done it one time from a so called serious dealer in Norway, and the piece I got was really cr.. so I had to get in the car and return it. I always like to feel the leather I buy. Now I have my local store here, and it´s really nice to go and pick the pieces.. but I´m about to move to Spain, so I really need to find a dealer as close to Barcelona or Igualada as possible. It´s about 30 min to an hour from where I´m moving, Sitges.

I have heard different stories about leather from Tandy (no experience my self) and friends which have tested the Hermann Oak, says it´s "nothing" compared to what we get here, without knowing exactly which tannery they come from at the moment, so this is more difficult than I thought hehe

I´ve heard Igualada is famous for their quality and many tanneries, but I haven't had any luck finding anyone that sells veg tanned leather.. yet.

My gf have some family in Alicante, so we could always go there for a weekend and shop, but.. it´s nice to have a local place, if possible.

I found a store in Barcelona, and I emailed them before I went there, and they said they could get anything i needed, so I went there, and they had more or less nothing, and still waiting after 3 - 4 months for getting back to me when they got it..

Thanks a lot again for your reply, its bookmarked, and if anyone else know other places too, it will be much appreciated :-)

Hi, I can suggest this store http://www.curtidosmarquez.es/ in Caceres. I lived there for months and I have bought a lot of pieces of leather and even a whole cow hide, very good quality. The prices were honest, 131euro for a 3mm hide.

Vachetta is from Spain. I personally don't know which tannery . Suppose to be one of the best vegetable tanned leathers used in luxury brands. The price is probably really high though might be worth it if you need really high quality.

Wickett and Craig is from USA, used by louis vuitton. Reasonable prices. Shipping by UPS Air cost somewhere near 5 or 10 percent for bond fees and a few other fees that aren't too much plus shipping costs. Most of these fees can be waived if you call UPS to prepay by credit card all duties and taxes.

Does anyone have suggestions for buying Pueblo leather in Spain?  All I can find is in the UK, nothing in Italy, where the hides are tanned?  Help appreciated!
