Additional Details

If you like the velvety look and feel of suede but want something that’s more durable, nubuck leather is your best bet. Buffed on the top grain with oil, nubuck feels soft while maintaining its strength. Both our black and brown options have a matte finish with just a little nap on the grain side.


Chrome tanning yields consistent color and grade and offers excellent value. Chrome tanning takes about one to three days as opposed to the one-to-three-month veg tanning process, making it an economical choice for crafters.
