Water, wood, air... for a natural hide!

  The “dry work” or finishing:

Setting out involves spinning and ironing the tanned hide prior to hanging it in the drying loft, a large building with slats to let the air through while protecting the leather from the sun. Drying lofts are nowadays equipped with blow rooms to speed this stage up.
Once it is dry, basil is degreased and softened one last time in the drum of a high-temperature machine.
Lastly, it is ironed in a perching machine and the paws and damaged contours of the basil leather are cut off.
