With a nice, firm feel that gives bags and other leathercrafting projects just the right body, this water buffalo leather has a top coat for an attractive, subtle sheen. Our team works closely with the tannery to transform water buffalo hides into one of our best-selling leathers with the right combination of a quality chrome tannage, a buffed grain, and a top coat that works well for a wide range of projects.


The time involved and expense of veg tanned leathers led to the development of chrome tanning in the mid-1800s. Chrome tanning takes about one to three days in contrast to the one to three-month veg tanning process, making it a more economical choice. Today, about 80-90% of the world’s leather supply is chrome tanned and it is heralded for its stain and water resistance as well as its consistency in color.
