This Water Buffalo Leather is more than just a pretty leather

You have likely heard the saying, beauty attracts the eye but personality captures the heart. Well, I have to say that applies to this gorgeous water-buffalo leather. Here are five reasons why this water buffalo leather will capture your heart!

  1. Superior protection: The animal naturally has a more fiberous, denser skin so it provides better penetration protection over slightly thicker bovine (cow) hide.

  2. Lighter weight: Due to the density of hide, we can use a thinner leather to accomplish the same level of protection. This translates into less weight hanging on your shoulders.

  3. Comfortable: The hide is tumbled which removes the stiffness of freshly tanned leather. The supple, broken-in feel translates into a leather that is more comfortable for you to wear right out of the box.

  4. It wears well: A light oil infusion helps deflect stains while the multi-hued brown tone hides dirt.

  5. Looks good: The chrome tanned leather yields consistent color and grade. This leather's subtle distressing offers a touch of rustic style that gets better with age!
