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: Tanned in Italy on heavy weight European hides, Potomac is a contemporary leather that exudes casual sophistication and rustic elegance. Wax is used in the tanning process and which is milled extensively and then ironed to achieve truly unique antiqued distressed appearances. The overall look of this leather brings to mind the luxurious richness of a beautifully worn English saddleYorkshire 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. Potomac 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.
