Description: "Make sure to grab a sprig of mint to sniff before taking in the traditional tannery in Morocco. Methods of tanning remain virtually unchanged for centuries. The strong odor comes from pigeon poop and cow urine used to break down the kids. The leather is dried and dyed to eventually become one of many beautiful Moroccan leather goods."
