DESCRIPTION: Yorkshire represents a blending of today’s technology with the dedication and skill of Old World artisans from a one hundred fifty year old Italian tannery. Yorkshire is a natural full grain leather. The hides have not been altered in any way during the tanning process. Shade variation is normal and areas of hides abosorb dyes differently, so natural dye lot variations will occur. Remember that a swatch is a general representation of the leather’s color and texture, not an exact match. Scars, marks, and branding are not flaws but rather are proof of authenticity, what we call “hallmarks of the trail”. Leathers will fade if exposed to direct sunlight. Yorkshire is a pull up leather which means color diffusion and “burst” will occur when worked by hand. If any of these characteristics is a problem please consider a “painted” leather. One that has been corrected and heavily pigmented.
