Step by step to quality
There are many tanning processes. We tan with non-toxic, trivalent chromium salt. This method has proven to be the most environmentally-friendly in various experiments. After tanning, the leather is folded and brought to the correct thickness for the various products.
During the retanning process, we lend it the tangible softness, the desired haft and the special, customer-specific character with individual formulas. The leather is also given the desired colour at this stage. We achieve a brilliant colour result with high quality and tested aniline dyes from Germany. They pose no risk to humans or the environment – you have our word on that.
Special greases make the leather water and dirt-repellent. The selection of the right grease substance is decisive for the softness, a neutral odour and the high level of durability of the leather. This important task is placed in the hands of our experienced tanners.
After stretching, there is only one more thing: a lot of time hang drying. We consciously work against the general trend in leather production. This is because with more time we can optimise the technical properties and the look of the leather. The result is high Heinen quality.
