Heavily finished leather with a highly lustrous baked enamel appearance. We worked for years to find a supplier that consistently produces a high quality patent finish and this is it. We recommend the veg tanned for items that require a finished edge and more firmness. The chrome tanned is softer and bends easier, however, the edges can be harder to finish. Ideal for shoes, restoring carriages or dashboards, and show harnesses. Chrome or vegetable tanned.
