Note: Natural Color will vary by hide. 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. Expect color variation.
DESCRIPTION: Selected South American hides are aniline dyed to create a rich saturation of color. The hides are then hand wiped with three colors to create a multi-tone effect. At that time, a special process is performed to distress the leather and then burnishing to give an antique effect. This leather gives an aged old world effect. This leather highlights all of the natural markings and colors and shades vary tremendously from hide to hide. Berra is a natural leather. The hides have not been altered in any way during the tanning process. Shade variation is normal and areas of hides absorb 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. If any of these characteristics is a problem please consider a "painted" leather. One that has been corrected and heavily pigmented.
