Crazy horse leather is actually a cow leather. You may find this answer is too short, so we would like to give you more detail about this question. Crazy horse leather also referred to as saddle leather is made by applying, a kind of wax to a full grain leather surface that has been buffed and smoothed out. The leather has been treated to look and feel aged while retaining its toughness. The more you use it, the better and more unique it looks.

 

*Please note that this bag is made of natural material, therefore each bag is unique with a slightly different color.

Steel Horse Leather

We, at Steel Horse Leather, aim to provide our customers with durable leather bags which will be a reliable companion during their travels. People’s fascination with an appreciation for leather is as old as time itself. There’s a reason why leather appears to always be in fashion. Simply put, it’s because leather is long-lasting, comfortable and has a classy look that has withstood the test of time. A genuine handmade leather bag which has been put together with exquisite perfection should be the textbook example of what the phrase ‘subtle elegance’ means. For us, the pursuit of timeless design in our leather bags is an effortless endeavor; when we make our vintage leather bags, we only use traditional methods but what gives our leather bags their authenticity is the touch of skillful mastery that comes from long years spent perfecting a craft. Graceful elegance is second-nature to our master artisans as they have dedicated their lives to their craft and are passionate about what they consider to be their ‘art’.


We also believe our customers deserve to know the story of how the leather used in their bag came to be. One of our priorities was to ensure that our customers have the peace of mind that the products they would be spending their hard-earned money on are not of questionable origin. We have taken a holistic approach to mapping where our leather comes from and how it has been processed. We’ve thoroughly vetted many providers of raw leather in terms of their background, work philosophy, sourcing and tanning practices and even their stance on ethical conduct in general. We have taken the utmost care to procure genuine leather of the highest quality because we have an obsessive love for leather ourselves and our customers deserve nothing less than the best.
