  Leather tanning information
Animal skins or hides are first "cured," a process which involves salting and/or drying the hide once it's been stripped from the animal.
After soaking, animal hides are moved through a machine which strips the flesh from the surface of the hide.
The hides are then transported to a large vat, where they are immersed in a mixture of lime and water, which loosens the hair from the skin.

Brain tanning animal hides is a centuries old process used by indigenous people around the world to produce soft, durable leather that can be used for clothing, footwear and shelter.
