There are three main groups of tanning:

 hungarian tanned

The Hungarian Dressing or Tawing

of skins is preferably used for decoration purposes, as it produces a very clear and white wool / hair structure. The tanned skins are very pleasing to the touch and have a good flexibility.

In the Hungarian tanning specialtawing agents are used.


medicinal tanned sheepskin

The Medicinal Tanning

produces a very good softness and a yellowish colour.
These skins are more suitable for daily home use as they a quite suitable for washing and have an excellent sweat resistance. Thus one finds these skins, which are fabricated professionally by “Rembert” very often in the medical field – as the name implies – e.g. in hospitals, the sanitary areas and in the small child and baby sector.


vegetabile tanned sheepskin

The Plant Tanning

also under the name of vegetabile tanning is a type of tanning that has become very dear to us, as this is a very interesting procedure.
There a tanning agent is used that is also extracted from bark as well as from the leaves and wood of various plants, as e.g. the tanning agent of the acacia tree (mimosa) or of the chestnut tree. The finished skins have a soft, light brown or caramel coloured leather side and a beige coloured wool side. They are preferably used as baby snuggle skins, decoration skins or as bed underlay for daily restorative sleep. This is a kind of processing that yields purely vegetable tanned products.

We are a leading enterprise in the field of fur tannery/fur refinement. Our tannery is located at Herne, North Rhine/Westphalia, Germany, near the Sauerland and the border of the Netherlands.

As one of few tanneries we dispose of an all-level production in Germany, i.e. from the raw hide to the finished end product.

The tanner profession has become a long family tradition with us and will continue for several generations.

Our tannery as well as the finishing section are in a modern state and dispose of the highest technical know-how, as our production is based on the advanced professional knowledge and skill of our master tanners and leather technicians.

On the one hand, our tannery is available for job order finishing, where for the most part sheep and lamb skins are tanned and finished – but of course also for everything the hunter, the shepherd, the breeder brings for tanning or for the raw ware that comes from the different slaughter houses.

On the other hand, for our own requirements and for the fur industry predominantly selected sheep and lamb skins are tanned and processed which have the best suited quality for the market as to wool and leather and which we obtain from slaughter houses as raw skins, e.g. from Australia (sheep country No. 1). The finished skins, which on request are manufactured in the most different colours and tannings, are supplied to the retail and wholesale trade and/or are further processed in our own sewing / clothing section, as e.g. car seat covers for the automobile industry, slippers, gloves, perambulator/baby carriage outfits, bed skins, decoration skins and many more.

In our house there is a sales and exhibition room where the various skins and skin articles in the most different sizes and colours are offered to our private customers.

There everybody can select the perfect skin for her/him and the ideal skin product.
