Monstera Tan is a division of Niche Lane Ltd. that specialises in vegetable tanned leather bags and accessories.
Vegetable tanned leather refers to the method of tanning the hide into leather. It’s called “vegetable” because of the plant-based elements used in the tanning process such as oak bark, fruit and small tree branches. Since there are no chemical components which are added during vegetable tanning process, it’s also environmentally friendly. As such, even if the water used in the process is discharged into rivers and lakes, there are less or no consequences to the environment. Additionally, the tanning process uses the plant powder which is less harmful to workers.
