The Saddle Leather we use – Sometimes known as crazy horse - is made from applying special waxes to surface of the leather. The effect here is that when rubbed the color will change and does not immediately reverse giving it an antique look. Originally this type of leather was used in factories to drive the pulleys of the machines. Its stiffness made it perfect for this and makes it perfect for briefcases. Usually not died to keep its natural color this leather darkens after time creating a rich look unique to each piece. It does not needs any other special treatments to be waterproof, and grows old very beautiful. When you want to refresh it's look just rub it's surface with a soft piece of fabric, in natural fibres as cotton, hamp and will have a different look. The wax will not live the water to be absorbed by the leather.
