Veg-tan Patina

TAKA shoes are made from vegetable-tanned vachetta leather.

Veg-tan is an ecological process that preserves the natural quality of leather and allows for the character to evolve and age with time.

TAKA’s Undyed classic color develops a rich patina with use, darkening naturally from sunlight, moisture and wear patterns.

Our Black & Umber color alternatives are dyed with plants.
