What Is Wet Blue Leather?
Wet Blue Tanned Leather Hides
Wet Blue is the term used for processing and converting raw hides to tanned leather using chromium salts.
Wet Blue Leather has a blue tone to it. This is gained by the chrome tanning process producing a moist leather that’s wet, at this stage it has no colouring, it’s not finished, and neither is it dyed.
At the stage of a wet blue hide, this means it’s tanned and free of hair, tanneries buy wet blue hides to use for a multitude of leather, converting them to usable hides and colouring them and sealing them.
