chemicals used in tanning leather furniture
I want to get a leather sofa- but my pulmonologist said to be careful due to the chemicals used in the tanning process. Formeldehyde and Chromium is used routinely, I know. Not good for any lungs. As most tanning/furniture is made in China/India areas, I am concerned that they will do it as cheaply as possible even if noxious products are used. There is supposed to be a better/newer process, but I cannot Google which brands use this. Other than contacting all the companies, do any of you know which are safe. (and how I can know they are telling the truth).??
