What is Crazy Horse Leather?
Crazy Horse Leather is a unique kind of leather that really stands out from the rest. It is coated with a special wax that gives it qualities that are different from any other kind of leather on the market today. Because of the waxy coating, when you bend or scratch the leather it changes color. These color changes give the leather a very worn and rugged look even though it may be brand new.
Crazy Horse Leather is made from full grain cowhide leather which means it is of the highest quality and will stand up to plenty of abuse. The leather is completely buffed and smoothed out during processing which gives it a very rich, smooth color. This is the base color that is then changed through normal wear and tear. Crazy horse leather also absorbs the oils of the skin so the more you touch crazy horse leather the glossier the leather becomes.
