Rusty Dark Brown Oil Tan

If you’re into the rustic look of days gone by, this leather might just do the trick! These lightweight, single water buffalo bends are the perfect cut for ensuring very little waste, meaning you get even more for your money! These bends are averaging somewhere in the 10 – 12 sf. range, give or take (but I’m looking at a 15 right now, so…) and most are between 3-1/2 to 4 oz.

This leather is very similar to Crazy Horse, with a rugged, worn looking finish, a nice pull-up, and the perfect hand for making bags, satchels, totes, journal covers, work chaps and chinks, and all sorts of personal leather goods! Honestly, leather this nice, shouldn’t be this CHEAP!

By the way, I’m not sure who in the world named this stuff, but something tells me there was a typo somewhere down the line and was most likely intended to be called “Rustic” and not “Rusty”. On the other hand, our fearless president, Rusty Darnell, IS looking a little antique-y, you know, kind of weathered and old… So maybe the name fits, after all… Ha!

Just kidding, Rusty, my paycheck says that you look distinguished and experienced. Not old in the least…

Excellent, very nice leather

I bought this leather a little over a month ago, and I have been using it since to make myself some handmade, over engineered, waterproof moccasin type boots. Bags, other things, and maybe wallets I can certainly see being made out of this. If anyone wants to know, this leather takes mink oil well and maintains its pull-up quality, adopting a more smooth, not waxy texture. It's beautiful, dark and rich. I received leathers that were not so heavily tinted red; it was to me a "Bark-Dark-Brown", and I think that color is absolutely perfect. I didn't notice any major imperfections. The leather was smooth. It was supple, firm, and durable. The pull-up is beautiful, and it makes it look old. I got the feeling that this is kind of hard to come by after buying other leathers from other places. This is a sure one to return to when I need it again.

This leather is great. The pull-up is beautiful. It's not too red, and I call it a "Bark-Dark-Brown". It is smooth, supple, firm and durable. I would return to buy this again.

Great oil-tan. Patinas beautifully. Little to no stretch.
