Dublin - Spice
The Essex, Dublin and Derby are tanned using Horween’s 100 year old Cordovan veg tan liquor formula. Dublin is a bit more rugged looking than the Essex leather it starts off as. The hides are infused with wax and then heat plated which enhances the grain, creates a pull-up effect and adds a bit more rigidity than the leather. Just like many of Horween’s leathers, it works great for just about any leather project. Limited Stock. 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.
