We use special molecules in the tanning process that coat the microfibres in the hide. This is how Perwanger® Leather becomes naturally ‘hydrophobic’ or water-repellent, with no protective coating applied to the surface.
Perwanger® Leather mimics the properties of a natural membrane. Our special tanning process prevents water from penetrating the leather while also allowing it to breathe.
Our tanning process lends a specific surface quality to our Perwanger® leather. This makes the leather particularly hard-wearing and scratch-resistant, even over rough and rocky terrain. The water-repellent properties, colour and structure of the leather are maintained in the long-term.
The exclusive use of selected raw materials with a dense fibre structure, combined with the special Perwanger tanning process, creates a compact leather composition. The ensures the footwear provides extra-special comfort and protection in any weather conditions and is particularly hard-wearing.
This is the only world we have, which is why we do everything we can to preserve human health and the natural environment: this of course includes ensuring that Perwanger leathers contain no harmful substances.
We are proud to have been awarded the strict OEKO-TEX® LEATHER STANDARD environmental certificate for our high-performance leathers.
