What is crazy horse leather? 

The overwhelmingly popular Crazy Horse leather has become the latest craze.

Many people have asked what Crazy Horse leather looks like and what it is made from.

We put together a simple guide below to give you a better understanding of the Crazy Horse Leather:

What is it made of?   

Crazy horse leather also known as saddle leather, is made by applying wax to full-grain leather after being smoothed out. The wax enhances the leather fibers and, when they are scratched or rubbed, the leather's natural color changes its shade, giving it an antique, vintage appearance.  

Why is it called Crazy horse leather?

Crazy Horse leather does not come from horses. It was instead named because Crazy Horse leather is often used to make horse saddles. 

Why does Crazy Horse leather feel ‘waxy’ and look like it is scratched?  

The wax creates a unique effect as, by giving it a rub or scratch, it gives the leather a patina resulting in a rustic, vintage appearance and a beautiful aging over time.

Advantages of Crazy Horse leather  

Crazy Horse leather is durable, strong, and has a unique look and feel that combines luxury and antique touch. The wax applied to the leather protects the leather making it more durable.  

One of the key characteristics of crazy horse leather is its ability to develop a unique patina over time. As the leather is used, it develops a rich and deep color that is unique to each individual item. This gives each item made from crazy horse leather a one-of-a-kind appearance and adds to its overall charm and character.

Another benefit of crazy horse leather is its durability. The wax applied to the leather creates a protective barrier that helps to resist moisture and wear and tear. This makes crazy horse leather a popular choice for items that need to withstand heavy use, such as bags, wallets, and belts.
