How is vegetable-tanned leather created?

Vegetable-Tanned Leather Skins

Vegetable tanned leather is created by tanning the animal skin, using a natural product found in plants and trees. Tannins produced by plants and trees, give the roots and stem their natural brown color. By extracting the tannin or boiling the leather with the plant or tree material, the leather is dyed a natural brown color depending on the type of plants or trees used.
