It's animal-based. As @jsotola said in the comments, "vegetable tanned leather" means animal hide tanned with plant substances rather than with, for instance, chromium sulphate. "Vegetable-tanned leather", in other words, rather than "tanned vegetable leather" There are, in fact, some very successful vegan leather substitutes ...

I am pretty sure there has never been governmental (or feudal/whatever) ban on animal slaughter and/or consumption, so I do not see your original question being answered. There can, however, be some approximation by looking at other huge organisations (such as religions) which do at times promote such bans. There is also the possibility of answering based on ...

We can only suppose this helped animal welfare, but the animals ...

Have you ever heard about the Animal Welfare Act in New Zealand? The law is not primarily about the consumption of meat in the sense of eating. However, if you take a broader definition of consumption then the "ban" of animals for cosmetics testing might go in the direction of what you were looking for.
