HELLER-LEDER GmbH & Co. KG, Hehlen, Germany
Blattwerk is the first serial leather by the manufacturer that is based on innovative olive leaf tannage. The tanning agent is extracted from olive leaves that are normally burned as a waste product during the olive harvest. Using these olive leaves, a tanning agent was developed that is 100% sustainable and refines the leather in a particularly gentle way. The subtle olive fragrance of the leather after it is treated attests its biological origin and the gentle process used to make the leather which does not involve sulphuric acid and salt.
