This is a ten minute tour of one of the world's leading leather tanneries - Hermann Oak leather in St. Louis, Missouri. Keith Valley has been granted permission by Weaver Leather to post this condensed edited version of copyrighted footage (which they provided) for your online viewing. If you would like your very own copy of the whole 56 minute presentation, you may call Weaver Leather at (800) 932-8371 and order the DVD (product item number 65-9560). I enjoyed seeing all the process steps and just how much labor intensive time it takes to prepare each side of leather before we (saddle-makers and leather artist) get our hands on it. I would also like to give out a big "THANK YOU!" to each employee in each department that take part in each step of the process. Enjoy!
