Drum Dyed leather is a vegetable tanned leather that is also processed in a rotating drum allowing the dye to penetrate efficiently. The natural tanning process of this leather creates a finished product that lends itself well to embossing, tooling, and carving. It also allows oils and dyes to penetrate evenly. This leather easily molds to your preferred shape and holds for many years to come. Drum Dyed leather is used mainly in the saddlery industry but also great for belts and custom tooling projects.
