These Goats are *100% Veg Tanned* with an aniline, hand tipped finish which emphasises the unique shrunken grain pattern of these Nigerian 'Sokoto' Goats. This is the classic Bookbinding leather that has been used for centuries, and we are by far the largest user of this unique and rare raw material.

Our Vegetable Tanned, Farm Reared, African Goats are the perfect example of our commitment to using sustainable raw materials. Our signature raw material, these Goat skins are tanned by hand in a farming cooperative in Africa using only the Begaruwa seeds that grow on the Nilotica trees on their land. The skins are all tanned by hand, and twisted during the tanning process to create a beautiful, natural shrunken grain pattern that is unique to this particular raw material. Every single part of the animal is used by the cooperative, and the money raised from whatever is left over, including the hides is what supports the entire community.
