We frequently emphasize the fact that all of our raw materials come from the historic Horween tannery. Their leather products are famous for its quality and old school way of treatment.
Let`s explore the characteristics of two cowhide types we most frequently use Horween Dublin Leather and Horween Chromexcel Leather.

What is Chromexcel leather? True to its name Horween Chromexcel is more processed cowhide. It`s a bit oilier under the hand and it has a more of a shiny finish when comparing it to Dublin. It also features that pull-up effect when folded. The “characteristics” of the animal are still visible but to a lesser extent.
With time natural Chromexcel patina will become more and more visible. Significant pluss is Chromexcel leather care. It can be cleaned with soft cloth and does not require frequent waxing.
At olpr. Chromexcel leather products come in the following colors:
