    Tabakaria Old Tannery For Sale - Halepa District: Property Location

    Tabakaria, situated in the rocky eastern region of Chania, is the district where, since the early 19th century, the tanneries for processing leather were located. It is a very atmospheric region, an architectural monument of the industrial age.

    The location chosen for this Halepa Old Tannery for sale is the most appropriate: pretty far and yet near the city, in a place with abundant groundwater, brackish water, next to the shallow sea that was useful for the first stage of leather processing.

    The main installation of these craftsmen in the area, held during the Egyptian occupation (1830-1840), according to official Arabic document. The Interwar period was the era of the heyday of Tabakaria.

    During the German Occupation tanneries stopped functioning while post war new machinery equipment replaced older methods and modernization made crafts more productive and profitable.

    Significant share of turnover accounted exports. The decline came in the 70s, to reach nowadays remaining alive about one tenth of the initial operations.

    Remaining buildings, shells, sometimes with the whole old equipment, monuments today of the industrial archaeology. Today from tanneries others are abandoned, others have changed use and some of them continue their operation.
