Which type of leather is right for me?
If you are looking for distressed, vintage leather with a firm feel, you should go with Horween Dublin leather or Crazy Horse leather. If you prefer smooth and medium-soft leather with a glossy finish, then Horween Chromexcel leather is right for you. Italian leather is the most supple and is the right choice for those who is looking for soft leather. Shell Cordovan and Caiman leathers are the most expensive ones as well as they are the most durable.

Horween leather is produced in the USA by the world-famous tannery. Crazy Horse leather is imported from Europe and is cheaper. Both types of leather are of high quality but Horween leather is more durable.
How would you recommend caring for the leather/cleaning leather?
Our products are made of naturally tanned leather that requires relatively little care. There is no need for frequent cleaning, and scratches or marks from daily wear and tear can be rubbed or polished out with a dry cloth. It only needs conditioning once or twice per year. Should your product get wet, remove any residual water immediately with a paper towel, pat loosely with paper and allow it to dry naturally. Please note that different leathers will wear differently and may change appearance over time.
