So I’ve seen that veg tanned leather is preferred because the chrome tanned leathers release harmful byproducts. I haven’t seen anything about using dyed leathers though. What would happen if I were to take a piece of veg tan, dye it with some Fiebing’s Pro Dye or something, and cut/engrave it? Would I need to worry about any toxins like with chrome tanned?
I did see an older thread on here about someone using a pre-dyed Tandy’s piece that smelled very badly, but in this case, I would be dying the leather myself. Don’t know if that makes a difference, but I would love to hear if anyone has experience with this.
