What kind of leather this is ?

Recommended Posts

Good day everybody , I received this sample from local tannery in Egypt ( where I live ) and they claim that's a veg tan leather but I don't really but it as there's a center line with dark grey centered in leather layers .. I tried the boiling water test it didn't curl up but it shrank about 20% of original length .. i don't know why it didn't curl on itself because it's not real veg tan or it's thick layer about 4mm

The weird issue that rose is it got burnished very beautiful with glass-like edge with just wooden slicker and water so it got me mad because I can't decide what is that ?!

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP:lol:

Since it burnished well, I would assume it's a veg tan. The  difference in center color  could be that the tannage didn't penetrate all the way thru the hide.

I think about it's a hybrid tanning which made firstly with chromium then  added some of the veg tanning tannin do it .. as I said before it didn't curl up in the test ( which can also be caused by the high thickness and firmness of this piece )

Thanks for your replay
