Naturparkschoul - How fur becomes leather

Have you ever wondered how animal skins become leather? What did the oak forests have to do with the production of leather in the 18th and 19th centuries? What part of the oak was used for the production of leather?

The little researcher wrote down how leather is made. Unfortunately he mixed up the pictures. Try to put the individual steps back in order.

After you have connected the individual pictures with a pencil, you can watch the video about the craft of "Lou Schläissen".

Next to the video you can also read the text with additional information about the tan (2. Lohwirtschaft).

If you are interested in the subject and would like to learn more about the craft of tanning, you can read the text with the additional information "3. Gerberei – erst Hauswirtschaft später Handwerk". You can get an exciting insight into the craft of the tanner of today in the following film on Youtube.
