MESSAGE ORDER REVERSED:
Brown could be achieved by a variety of vegetable/plant dyes, black
would have been achieved with logwood based dyes or iron/vinegar dye.
Or you could just throw the thing into some Pennsic water.
Have you seen what that stuff does to leather?
I threw some veg tanned stuff in there and a minute later clouds of
black stuff came off of it and when I pulled it out it looked like
oil-tanned leather. S'truth!
But on a more serious note, I would think that Walnut hulls would make a
great leather dye...
