sustainable premium leather - MADE IN GERMANY

When we got our first rhubarb leather, we were more than satisfied. The quality of the leather, its look and feel really inspired us.

rhabarberleder - the chromium-free alternative

The starting point for the development of rhabarberleder (rhubarb leather) was the search for an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional chrome tanning.


For several years we have focused intensely on the solution. We tested several rhubarb genotypes for their suitability, optimized cultivation requirements and developed an innovative tanning extract.


With this and without the addition of environmentally harmful chromium compounds, we can produce a vegetable-leather, that meets the highest standards of quality, sustainability and versatility.
