Top 4 Leather Patina Choices

Top 4 Leather Patina Choices

Which leather will patina the most?

In order to answer that, let's ask what is leather patina?

We're often asked what leather will form the best patina over time. The definitive answer will always ever be Natural Veg Tan. Leather without any dye added during the tanning process is what we refer to as "natural". But different tanning processes can produce a different color of "natural". Take for example Horween Chromexcel in natural.

Even though no color has been added during the tanning process, the color ends up a rich gray brown just based on it's unique tanning with blends of Horween's proprietary oils and waxes.
