Veg-Tan or vegetable-tanned leather in furniture comes as naked unfinished and finishes with a clear top coat for better absorbency protection. A distilled water droplet test at hidden corners will determine its finishes. Unfinished leather is not stable in water and tends to discolor if left to soak and then dry the leather will shrink and become less supple, stiff, and easily crack. 

Veg-Tan, fatliquor content unlike other tanning types, will require more fatliquor to keep it supple from getting stiff and becoming easily cracked.  

Veg-Tan leather with evidence of stiffness, hardness, or micro-cracking, it is recommended that fatliquoring commence immediately after cleaning or stain removal before the leather becomes dry again or otherwise empty of fatliquor drying will lead to stiff leather, and cracking becomes magnified. A healthy leather fat and oil moisture level should read about 15% from a leather moisture meter. 

Veg-Tan leather is tanned using tannin and other ingredients derived from vegetable matter, such as tree bark prepared in bark mills and other similar sources. It is supple and brown, with the exact shade depending on the mix of chemicals and the color of the skin. It is also the only form of leather suitable for use in leather carving or stamping.
