The reason that I was curious about the Orasol dyes is that I understand that
the conventional leather dyes such as hewitts and fiebings are aniline- a
coal tar derivative, therefor destructive to paper and cloth, although
leather is stable at a lower Ph than cellulotic materials. They also have
the disadvantage of being pretty fugitive (not all are so bad) and fading.
