Veg HBS – Waxed and Burnished Russet Seconds
Veg tan horsebutt strips with a waxed and burnished finish. The burnishing process really enhances the natural grain characteristics of the leather.
Tanned using a slow process to create a firm, dense leather that is ideal for wet molding and stamping. The veg tanned strips come from the heavier section of the hide and have a very tight grain structure. These “Russet” strips are tanned alongside Horween’s Shell Cordovan during the first 45 days of their production. The veg extracts used to make these strips provide them with a natural russet color that will deepen to a beautiful chestnut tone when oiled. This deeper color tone can also be achieved after longer periods of use and exposure to light.
The dense make up of these strips makes them ideal for straps and small leather goods.
Note: Horsebutt Strips have a tapered shape that will vary from piece to piece. These 2nd Run Strips will have stains, cracks, scars, light/dark color marbling, etc.
