How is Leather Made?

We search for high quality raw hides all across Turkey. Raw hides are salted before received by the factory. First, we pickle and rest the salted raw hides in our factory. After the hide is rested and the excess water is removed, excess salt is beaten off. After beating, areas such as feet or hooves are removed from the main hide with a sharp knife and the hide is prepared for drums. 

Then, the raw hide is subjected to wetting, liming, fleshing, splitting, chrome tanning and setting processes. Then, chrome tanned leather goes through sammying and quality selection processes and shaved to desired thickness based on the orders we receive. Trimming and oiling is made after shaving. Following oiling, the leather is vacuum dried or ironed. Finally, the leather is dyed and finished.
