      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...
