There a many methods of tanning. The type and the materials used depend on the expected outcome. Prominent amongst the materials usable for this purpose is chromium, which leaves the leather, once tanned, a pale blue color. Another process involved is Crusting. It comes after the hide or skin has being: thinned, re-tanned and lubricated. It is leather production sub-process involving: drying and softening.
