When your project will be exposed to the elements, this leather is the perfect choice. Originally tanned specifically with harnesses in mind, this leather is infused with oils, waxes and tallows for the ultimate in weather resistance and a broken-in feel that exudes the character of a well-loved heirloom. 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.
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.
