Some of the nicest kilties I’ve ever stocked in Maryam Navy Horse Rump!!!! 

Horserump TPR Vegetable Tanned Leather comes from the Maryam Tannery in Tuscany, Italy. The Maryam tannery, heir to centuries-old experience and knowledge, still performs with care and passion the slow process that takes raw hides to become leather, in total respect of nature. A process based on the use of natural tannins from the trees, new technologies and the slow passage of time.

The horserump is cut from horse butts that don't have the size and other attributes to be selected for shell cordovan. This veg tan horserump leather is the top grade, it is full grain with incredible denseness and a rich feel. Often many of these hides you will see small areas of actual shell cordovan within the hide you can you can use. It has a nice firmness with some slight suppleness.

These horse butts have an aniline finish showing off its natural grain and beauty meaning it will patina. One of the unique aspects of this leather is the honey comb pattern of wrinkles you see in the hides. It is a signature of some of this horse butt and give a special look to products made with it. And lastly, this leather has a TPR finish, which is a resin finish to gives the hide a stunning shell cordovan-esque finish. This leather is about as close as you get to shell cordovan at roughly 1/3rd the cost.
