The Tannery is an early production building for the Leathercloth resource, which is vital for recruiting military units and satisfies the Tier 2 population need for Clothing. Due to the contention between military and public demand, it is often difficult to acquire Leathercloth in high quantities for military recruiting until you advance to a Barter economy (for declaring State Resources).

Leathercloth also comes with a very high Workforce cost, so players should not expect to fully satisfy public demand for it until reaching at least Level 3 Tanneries. Animal Breeding can be used for renewable Leather production once you unlock it.
