Chromexcel – Natural
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.
2nd Run – hides may have defects like brands, healed scars, holes, loose break, tannery cuts, etc.
Craft Grade – hides will have more defects than the usual second and may be best for cutting smaller goods and are discounted accordingly.
