About Hermann Oak Strap / Toolling Leather
The clean strong open tannage offers the strap or belt maker the ability to dye or to carve crisply according to whatever design he imagines. All this while retaining the full grain genuine leather-look and with minimum stretch or distortion. And because it is veg-tanned, this leather will "edge burnish" far better than other tannages.
