Chrome-Tanned Leather Skins

Chrome-tanned leather is the process where salts of chromium are applied to leather. The leather does not become as hard as vegetable-tanned leather, but retains its color and shape. This type of leather skin is softer than vegetable-tanned leather and is used to make saddlebags and leather chaps.
