Vegetal leathers are usually firm and hard, and mainly used for the flaps of a saddle, while chrome-tanned leathers tend to be flexible and elastic, and are used for the seat and pads. Chrome is a heavy metal, harmful for the environment, and takes decades to break down. It can also provoke allergies.
