HORWEEN HORSEFRONT LEATHER
Since 1905 | Chicago, IL
Horween Horsefront leather is widely recognized as the finest jacket leather. The hides are a comfortable 3.5-4oz. but with the tensile strength of a much heavier hide. The fiber structure of horsehide is much different than cow or steer hide, with a tighter grain that has much less stretch and a naturally smooth grain.
Horween Leather Company has been tanning leather in Chicago, IL for more than 100-years. They are a five generation, family run company that we are proud to be working with. They are true artisans of their craft and recognized world-wide as one of the premier tanners of leathers like horsehide, shell cordovan, football leather, basketball leather and more. Today, their leathers are still made by hand, the same way as generations ago.
