What is tannery ?
The objective of tanning is both to soften the skin for assembly and to protect it chemically by making it rot-proof against attacks from biological agents (bacteria, fungi, insects, etc.) which could feed on it.
The skin is soaked in different chemical baths, the composition of which is studied to preserve its physical characteristics and its appearance. Lubrication ends the operation by restoring the final touch of softness to the treated skin. It is necessary after treatment to maintain the hairs by regular brushing.
