Acorn Caps & Izmir Turkey
The AR-TU family owned factory in Izmir Turkey produces VALEX - a powder tannin product for the leather tanning industry. VALEX is the trade name for acorn cap based vegetable tanning agents in liquid and powder form. This is the only factory in Turkey that produces VALEX. These are 10m tall (3 stories) copper cookers that boil 4500 kilos of acorn caps each for 120 minutes at the beginning of a laborious extraction process.
