Unless you are a leather expert you are probably asking yourself, “what is crazy horse leather?” Crazy Horse leather refers to a unique process that results in a leather with a dual toned finish.
THE CRAZY HORSE FINISH
Due to the uniqueness of the dual tone effect, Crazy Horse is a sought after finish. The effect is developed by using two colors, one in the dying process and one in the finishing. This allows the bottom color to “pull-up” over time and creates a patina with a marbled surface. Depending on the two colors this can create a vintage look like in our Signature collection, or in the case of our Midnight Blue collection a contemporary spin on a classic color way.
HISTORY BEHIND THE NAME
Although the name "Crazy Horse" can be a little misleading, it is not made of horses, rather our leather is made from 100% full grain cowhide. The finishing get's its name from the historic popularity of using this specific finish to make riding saddles. It's unique nature of a vintage look that is obtained without compromising the durability made it the perfect choice for the saddle makers, and for your bag.
CARING FOR YOUR CRAZY HORSE LEATHER.
Think of how a good shoe shining can make your worn shoes look perfectly new again, the same can be done by taking care of your leather bag. When the surface is feeling dry take a soft clean towel and a bit of leather care wax, with small circles apply a thin layer to the surface.
