Crazy Horse Large Leather Journal - Wheat

Crazy Horse Large Leather Journal

One paper refill is already included so that the journal can be used immediately. If you are looking for a reliable everyday journal for notes and planning without breaking the bank - look no further, you are in the right place!

Durable Nature
Not only is the leather soft to hold in your hands, it is also very durable. Due to the special processing technique, Crazy Horse is very long-lasting and supple. The wax used during manufacturing as a finish enhances the fibers. When an item made of this leather is scratched, rubbed or bent the wax on the surface is displaced which results in beautiful natural patterns that are unique to every item.

Please Note

Due to the handmade nature, this leather is subject to color change, sometimes it can be lighter / darker than in the picture as each hide reacts to the dyeing process differently. This leather comes with all natural markings and imperfections of the hide preserved. Also, when the surface of the hide is scratched or rubbed, the wax enhanced fibers are displaced and the piece changes color over time. It results in a particular pattern, unique to every item.

About the Leather

What is full grain leather

Basically, leather is trillions of interwoven fibers. The closer you get to the surface, the smaller and denser become those fibers. Hence, the top layer is the strongest and the most durable cut one can buy. The term “Full Grain” is used to define that top, uppermost layer of the cow hide which was not sanded or polished.

What is vegetable tanned

When we speak about leather, obviously it needs to be preserved before it can be used for crafting and making goods. Vegetable tanning is actually the way leather hide is preserved. This method is one of the many possible, but its distinctive feature is in all-natural technique. Hides are soaked in certain tubs filled with natural solutions, like tree bark.

These extracts are dense, and when they bind to the hide, they fill in the gaps in the fibers. By filling these gaps the leather becomes even more durable and tight. After that, it is finished with a combination of transparent waxes and oils, which gives the leather a very soft feel. Every piece made of vegetable tanned leather has unique shades and nuances, which are a mark of genuineness.

 

What is pull-up effect

Now you know more about full grain leather production and tanning. We touched on natural extracts and wax & oil finish so you can understand what “pull-up” is.

When full grain leather is stretched or pulled, the color migrates and becomes lighter in the pulled areas. Hence the term pull-up. It happens because oils and waxes are displaced on the surface by a movement of the material. It is a characteristic of natural tanning processes.

Leather wrinkles

Other characteristics to take note of are wrinkles. As full grain leather is not sanded during production it preserves its natural look. Normally, the cow has wrinkles where the skin was bent, like on the neck, near legs etc. These wrinkles are not removed on purpose. They show that leather is correctly processed full grain top hide.

Leather scars

Same as wrinkles, scars on leather hide are also preserved. During its life the animal may get scratches, insects bites or small wounds. As a result of natural healing there remains a scar. After the hide is separated from the flash, these marks are left untouched as required by the technology.
