In the first stages of processing the hide is prepared to be tanned. It is rehydrated to open the fibers, the hair and the superfluous organic material are removed, the grain is cleaned and the dermal structure is stretched. The tanning products used later can then work in a uniform and more effective way.

TANNING PRODUCTS LINE

The tanning stabilizes the collagen structure of the hide making it no longer perishable. Depending on the type of tanning agent used, it can give a different appearance and characteristics. IKEM’s traditional mineral tanning method has developed a metal-free process for the production of metal-free articles.
