Latigo Type – Suffolk
Horween’s Latigo line is a full grain, veg retan leather. Characterized by a beautiful tight grain and made in a full range of color, finishes, weights and tempers. Many people think of Latigo as the original saddlery style leather. While Horween will produce it in matte or gloss finishes, heavy or soft tempers, it can also be produced in a full aniline, semi aniline, or pigment finishes, as well as naked, hand glazed or waxed.
Suffolk is made to be a waterproof leather. Since it is a second run hide, we are comfortable calling it highly water resistant.
We will refer to miscellaneous 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.
