These glorious bridle sides are 100% Veg. tanned leather, tanned right here in America on full-grain domestic hides, and available in 5 classic colors!!! This gorgeous leather has been vegetable tanned with Hermann Oak’s time-honored, pit tanning process, drum dyed for struck-through color, hot stuffed with oils, fats, and tallows and finished with natural waxes for that distinct firm, yet luxurious temper, smooth rich feel, and natural weather resistant properties we’ve come to expect from superior quality bridle leather. The backs have been pasted during the stuffing process, which not only gives them a more finished look, but adds that extra bit of protection against the elements. This is the perfect leather for making the most fabulous holsters, knife sheaths, belts, saddle bags, and of course, tack applications! And since it’s available in three different weights, including 2-3 oz, the project possibilities are endless! Note: This leather is Full Grain, meaning it hasn’t been sanded or buffed to remove any imperfections, so you may find some minor surface blemishes, like healed scratches, insect bites, etc. but nothing that can’t be worked around.
