Home Horween Leather Derby/Dublin/Essex

Essex is a full grain leather tanned with Horween’s time-tested Shell Cordovan veg tanning liquors. The hides are nourished with a blend of grease, fats & oils to give the leather a soft, yet durable, well rounded feel.

Dublin can be a bit more rugged looking than the Essex hides it starts off as. The grain is infused with wax and then heat plated, which enhances the grain, creates a pull-up effect and adds a bit more rigidity to the leather.

Derby is a milled variation of the Dublin leather. This milling/tumbling process softens the leather while also enhancing the full grain of the hides.

Typically made in earth tone and natural veg tan colors. Just like many of Horween’s leathers, it works great for just about any leather working project from bags to shoes to wallets!
