Why natural dye with vegetable tanned leather? These wallets were made with minimal use of toxic polluting dyes and chemicals. Natural leather, unlike vegan leather(or manmade leather) has much longer life, reducing future waste. Botanical dye and the veg tan leather ages beautifully - It becomes more supple and dark. Color and texture become rich, reacting to natural oil coming from user's skin, making each wallet uniquely owner specific.
