Essex – Black Shiny Tumbled
The Essex, Dublin and Derby are tanned using Horween’s 100 year old Cordovan veg tan liquor formula. A bit more rugged looking than the Essex line that this Dublin leather 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.
2nd Run – hides may have defects like brands, healed scars, holes, loose break, tannery cuts, etc.
