Chromexcel – Chicago Tan Type
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. Made in USA.
We will refer to Horween Leathers as a “type” when we have no way of telling the exact tannage. 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.
