Leather is a biodegradable material that has been manufactured for many centuries, perhaps one of the oldest materials that mankind using, all ancient civilizations and ethnicities used leather, mainly to dress, the first civilizations developed methods to convert the skin in leather and in this way make it more durable and resistant. This process is called tanning.

There are two ways of tanning and producing leather, formerly made with completely vegetable products and handcrafted way, this is a totally ecological manufacturing process, but it is slow and very laborious that today is still being carried out.

The big leather industries at the moment use Chromium for the elaboration of the leather, this is a faster process but also more polluting because it leaves residues in the skin and in the environment.
