Austin Type – Blue
Austin is a full grain, combination tanned leather that has been fat liquored in the tanning process. These leathers have a smooth feel with no pull-up.
We will refer to miscellaneous Horween leathers as a “type” when we are not 100% sure of the exact tannage, but feel it is closest to that tannage of leather. New leathers are constantly being developed at the tannery, and we have no way of identifying the leather exactly unless labeled on the hide itself. We do the best we can to identify type, color etc.
These are second run hides which means some hides may have issues ranging from a color defect/variation to brands, holes, scarring, loose break, drawn grain, tannery swatch cuts, etc. Many times, we have also created our own color names and these should not be referenced to identify any leathers not sold here at Maverick.
