These are our latigo leathers. You can view the info about each one below.
Black: Our black leather is what we feel we are known for. It is the finest, highest quality black latigo leather available on the market. Some may say this is arguable, but if you ever touch it, bend it, put it on your dog, play with it, you'll know what
we're talking about. It is 9/11 oz. has a matte finish and is struck completely through (the black goes through to the core). Breaks in like butter and only gets better with age. It's so full of waxes, oils and GOOD stuff that surface scratches seem to pop back out.
Golden Tan: Our Golden Tan is 9/10 oz. and it is tan leather that has some yellow to it. Hence, the name, "Golden Tan". It is a soft leather and pliable, but holds its shape. It has a glossy finish in comparison to our black. This leather turns brown with age, conditioning, and wear.
Burgundy: Our Burgundy leather is from the same family as our black leather. It is 9/11 oz., has a matte finish, and, while not struck all the way through, its color goes through enough that when conditioned, it darkens the edges. Breaks in like butter and only gets better with age. It's so full of waxes, oils and GOOD stuff that surface scratches seem to pop back out.
Chocolate Brown: Our chocolate brown, cognac brown, and golden tan leather are all from the same leather family. This leather is soft and pliable, but holds its shape.
Cognac Brown: This is our favorite and most popular brown color. Brown with a hint of red, this leather color is a super nice brown. It's soft, pliable, but holds its shape.
Cheddar: Our most unique-colored latigo leather. It's an eye-catching color, and it's from the same leather family as our black and burgundy leathers. It behaves similarly to the black and burgundy, which we expect because it is from the same family. It darkens with conditioning to a golden tan color, BUT! once the conditioner is absorbed, the bright color returns, only leaving the edges with a nice burnished look. We have noticed that the absorption takes about 15-20 minutes, sometimes longer, sometimes shorter. This leather is new to us, so we are not sure exactly if the color will permanently darken over years, but if it really is like our black and burgundy, it should only get better with age.
Nutmeg: This leather is a tricky latigo. WE LOVE IT. It is a little stiffer at first, but it really takes no time for this leather to become soft and break in nicely. I have used this leather on our Luke's collars, and it darkens slightly with conditioning (you WILL want to use a beeswax based leather conditioner), but it remains a nice brown as it breaks in. It is really not as red as it is in the photo. It is pretty difficult to photograph this leather color exactly. It's more the color of our golden tan when the golden tan breaks in, and there isn't any "red" in it, actually. It is a nice true nutmeg color in person.
Dark Brown: This leather color is lighter than our chocolate brown and lacks red. It has the same quality and wear as our black, burgundy, and cheddar leathers. Another of our faves. It really should be just called "brown" as it is the exact color of a brown crayon. Looks great on dogs with darker brown coats or darker brown spots.
