Hermann Oak® is one of the oldest and most trusted names in harness leather and remains to this day the top choice of some of the finest harnessmakers we know. Stuffed in drums with heavy tallows, this leather gives anything you make from it exceptional wear, thickness and durability. It is skived to a wide variety of weights to meet your needs.


Drum dying gives this leather its beautiful, deep color. The tanner immerses the leather in dye before tumbling it in a drum to maximize dye penetration. In addition, this leather is veg tanned the old-fashioned way using a tightly-controlled, one to three-month process that utilizes tree bark and other natural tannins for leather that is prized for both its beauty and workability.
