Mar '10
Traditional tanning methods include the usage of chrome and other heavy metals which changes perishable raw hides into durable leather. But as an adverse effect chrome and other metals pollute and contaminate the environment.

Chrome and other metals used in the standard chemical processes put water and air into high risk through seepage and toxic fumes.

A new and ecological process is now used for making 'eco leather', which consists of using only sustainable materials without any heavy and toxic materials.

Eco-friendly and good quality leather products are made using natural waxes, and vegetable products. In the making of eco leather, sustainable materials are used for tanning the leather.

All natural and bio-degradable farm tree extracts are used to treat the animal hides, and at each stage, it is tanned with care and precision.

Natural extract from mimosa trees are used to make the necessary materials for tanning the leather. This process is naturally friendly, and makes gorgeous leather products.

With unique textures and with the richness of bold colors, eco-friendly leather products are available for interior decorations, fashion accessories, apparels, and many more applcations.
