Johnny Farah almost exclusively uses vegetable-tanned leathers. This guarantees a very beautiful aging of the leather with time.
The Process of vegetable-tanning uses tannins and other ingredients found in different vegetable matter, such as tree bark prepared in bark mills, wood, leaves, fruits, and roots. It is the ancient way to tan leathers and is eco-friendlier and has less negative impact on the environment versus the tanning of leathers involving heavy metals such as chrome and aluminum.
Because of this more natural process natural defects like scars and some discoloration is usually apparent but is considered as part of the design, giving more character and uniqueness to the product.
Our brass hardware is 100% solid brass that is hand forged in a specialized metal workshop and will also age nicely with time.
