Chromexcel Type – Chocolate
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.
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.
