The Leather We Use!

Over the next few weeks we will post blog updates on the leather we use here at Night Heron Leather. Our desire is that you would have confidence in what you are buying by knowing more about the quality leather we use. 

Up First: Harness Leather

Made with a natural finish, Harness leather is a durable, vegetable tanned leather that was originally made for harnesses and other riding tack that came in direct contact with the horse. It is infused with waxes and oils to resist sweat and water, while remaining strong with repeated use and wear. Its natural finish makes it popular for belts, wallets and bags, where each hide comes with its own unique grain and blemishes that remain visible after the tanning process is complete.
