Chromexcel leather is produced by Horween Company. This type of cowhide is known as full grain leather - the upper part of the animal skin, just under the hair. It is very durable and strong but due to its oily finish it is also soft and pleasant to hold in your hands. One of the most distinctive features of the leather is its unique surface showing small scars, color variations and other natural marks. Items made of full grain leather do not require special care, last for years, and only get better with time when leather acquires a beautiful patina.

Please Note

Due to the handmade nature, this leather is subject to changes in color, sometimes it can be lighter / darker than in the picture as each hide reacts to the dyeing process differently. This leather comes from the upper part of the cowhide, where the hide is the strongest, with all natural markings and imperfections preserved. This leather is of high quality, as it ages it develops a patina turning your particular piece to a one of a kind item with unique pattern and vintage look.

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. Now you know more about full grain leather production and tanning.

What is pull-up effect

We touched on natural extracts and wax & oil finish so you can understand what “pull-up” is. Color migrates and becomes lighter in full grain leather when it is stretched or pulled. Hence the term pull-up. It is a characteristic of natural tanning processes and happens because oils and waxes are displaced on the surface by a movement of the material.

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.
