Susana Erazo is the mastermind behind Hide Boutique's playful style. Products are handmade using Italian vegetable tanned leather, marrying a unique sense of design with a high level of craftsmanship.
As there is a large amount of work that goes into turning raw materials into her finished products, Susana prefers to work with quality supplies. This usually means vegetable tanned leather from pasture raised cows.
The vegetable tanning process takes more time and care, relying on dye recipes that are hundreds of years old. Unlike chrome-based tanning used for mass production, vegetable tanned leather doesn't produce toxic wastewater. As it also lasts longer and ages gracefully, your leather cannabis accessories will develop a patina and become even more beautiful with time.
"These hides have scratches from barbed wire fences, mosquito bites... marks that make each skin unique and beautiful." - Susana Erazo
