This hide has stake marks imprinted into the grain. Staking is a process done at the tannery to lightly soften up the leather without tumbling or milling the hide.
Horween’s Latigo line is a full grain, veg retan leather. Characterized by a beautiful tight grain and made in a full range of color, finishes, weights and tempers. Many people think of Latigo as the original saddlery style leather. While Horween will produce it in matte or gloss finishes, heavy or soft tempers, it can also be produced in a full aniline, semi aniline, or pigment finishes, as well as naked, hand glazed or waxed. Just like many of Horween’s leathers, it works great for just about any leather working project from bags to shoes to wallets!
