Our Crazy Horse leather is a US sourced and chrome tanned cowhide that’s made by applying special purpose waxes to a full grain surface. These waxes are melted and migrated under frictional heat. As a result when the leather surface is rubbed the color of the rubbed portion changes, which does not reverse immediately. This exhibits an antique effect. One of the first things I do with any new crazy horse item I make for myself is to bend and fold the piece as much as possible. The oils and colors seem to burst from the hide.
