This leather has a deep richness because it has been treated with oils, waxes and dyes in such a way that when the leather is pulled or stretched, the finish becomes lighter in the stretched areas. That gives an “Old World” effect or “Aged” look. The color returns when heat is applied or friction from rubbing a cloth or your hand in that area. This is considered a mark of high quality leather. This durable leather is perfect for chaps, purses, moccasins, saddle strings, tie straps, lining for tack and much more. 5.5 – 6.0 oz thick.
*This is an approximate size chart. Not all hides will fit this exactly.
