Leather is a beautiful material. It is versatile, durable and reliable. It characteristically will not become fragile when in contact with water, will not decay when wet drying afterward, and does not become glutinous if exposed to strong heat.
Although we all know that leather comes from animal skins, we might not know the time consuming and technical process required to take it from being a decomposable skin to a preserved and usable material. This is a lengthy (and not for the faint-hearted if I may add) process known as tanning.
The primary function of the tanning process is to stop decomposition and increase durability by altering the protein structure of animal skins.
There are three main types of tanning. These are:
1. Vegetable-tanned leather
2. Chrome-tanned leather
3. Pit-tanned leather
What’s the difference? Here’s a brief overview:1. Vegetable-tanned leather
2. Chrome-tanned leather (wet blue)

Seasons are no longer what they used to be. Our global expectations of spring, summer, autumn and winter have changed, and especially so in countries where the climate passes through the four seasons. Global warming has effected every aspect of our lives. It has brought hot summer days into the midst of winter, and rainy clouds and gloom into what should have been a sunny summer afternoon.
