Above is a picture taken during the 1860's dyeing leather.
Dyeing at the time of the Civil War was a multi-step process that was done at the tannery. Today to get the same type of finish the process must be done as they did. The difference is it must be done by us instead of the tannery.
Tanneries use a different dye process today and it is called drum dyeing. This process is when the leather is put in a drum along with the dye and then it is tumbled, the problem is it dyes both sides of the leather. Both sides of the leather is not how the original leather was done.
We like to dye whole sides.
This is a slow process but it produces the most correct finish possible.
This is what it takes to get finishes like these!
