Cavalier Type – Golden
Cavalier is a variation of Chromexcel® leather that is typically dyed in brighter tones and will display a vibrant pull-up for most colors. Made with a corrected grain to give the hides a smooth, uniform appearance.
Chromexcel® leather has been produced using the same hot-stuffing formula for over 90 years. This process infuses the hides with Horween’s proprietary oil, wax and tallow mixture that provides the leather with an unmatched durability and feel. They are then hand-stained with an aniline dye which creates a richly colored leather with a beautiful pull-up effect. (Black CXL does not display a pull-up). This full grain leather holds up well to the elements and resists hardening for generations.
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 type/tannage of leather. Many times, we have created our own color names. New leathers are constantly being developed at the tannery, and we have no way of identifying the leather exactly. We do the best we can to identify type, color etc.
2nd Run – hides may have defects like brands, healed scars, holes, loose break, tannery cuts, etc.
