Harmatan specializes in producing the finest quality vegetable-tanned leather specifically for the bookbinding trade, and they hold a very high worldwide reputation among the craft.
Their leathers are created using traditional methods at their small, highly specialized tannery in Northamptonshire, U.K. All of the materials used are natural and are sourced locally. Each hide receives individual treatment, a process that cannot be replicated by modern production methods. The tanning technique follows historic tradition, using only Sumac and other materials of pure vegetable origin.
