The very popular and growing craze over crazy horse leather and it's unique antique appearance is taking the international online community by surprise. A simple scratch or rub turns the leather fibers to a different shade, a slight bend and the entire bend line fades to a different shade as well, and still this type of leather is as durable as any other high quality leather. But what is "crazy horse leather" exactly and how is it any different than other types of leather?
Crazy horse leathers are made by applying a special kind of wax to a full grain leather surface that has been buffed and smoothed out. The type of wax used rests independently upon the leather fibers allowing the coloration of the leather surface to change if rubbed without the colors immediately reversing back. This process of rubbing and altering the color shades is what causes the antique appearance and is exactly what the craze for this leather is all about.
Crazy horse leather is not a fairly new type of leather and has been around for some time now. But only recently has the production of it began to pick up steam. Currently, you can find quite a few leather goods on the market that are made of crazy horse leather. About 70% of all crazy horse leather goods are coming out of China. In fact, almost our entire leather products catalogue consists of crazy horse leather made briefcases, satchels and backpacks, and all of which are handmade in China and shipped from China.
