Vat Dyed Leather

Vat dyed is just like it sounds, the tanned leather is allowed to soak
in vats with vegetable dyes and then polished.  The advantage over a
pigment finish is that there is more depth to the dye. The exterior look
can be more or less shiny.  The main difference between a vegetable dye
and milled or drum dyed cowhides will be the feel, the vegetable tan
will be much firmer, especially when new.  The bags will, of course,
soften when used.
