When you need something heavyweight, this hot stuffed leather fits the bill. We use this leather to make our top-of-the-line extra heavy harness reins. The hot stuffing process ensures this leather will look and perform well for years as the oils and waxes from the core of the leather rise to the surface keeping it supple and conditioned. This is one of those leathers that will just about last forever with proper care and maintenance. Please be aware that the oil content makes this leather unsuitable for molding or stamping.
Hot stuffing is a process that dates back hundreds of years. The tanner utilizes heat to stuff the leather with a blend of natural waxes and tallows. This impregnates the leather to the core ensuring a supple, weather-resistant finish that’s prized by many leather artisans. Hot stuffed leathers may bloom, or develop a cloudy, hazy look as the oils come to the surface. This bloom can be easily buffed away or will wear away as the item created from this leather is used.
