If you’ve been looking for an environmentally safe and healthy alternative to conventional chrome and other chemical tanning processes, wet-green® OBE has the answer. wet-green® tanning avoids any risk of toxic hexavalent chromium formation in the final leather product, and also tannery workers won’t be handling toxic tanning chemicals. The company’s patented olive leaf concentrate produces leathers that are soft, light, and durable (yes, they retain their shape beautifully too). The natural shade of the tanned leather is a perfect base for dyeing to achieve a wide range of colors. The aqueous olive leaf extract is safe for the environment, fresh-water supplies and the communities that use it. Leathers tanned with wet-green® OBE can be used in a variety of ways, from apparel to footwear and accessories, furniture and automotive interiors.
