About the NuBuck Leather (Camel):

Very durable leather and tends to do a good job against scratching or scarring.

Historically, the Nubuck was made from buckskin of deer or elk and was bough to the US market at the beginning of the 1930’s. At first, this new type of leather didn’t encounter much success, until the Duke of Windsor traveled on a royal visit to the United States. He was wearing Oxfords made of the new nubuck and thanks to him, the new style took off.

The Nubuck can be mistaken to suede leather due to its suede-like touch. To make the nubuck, the outer layer of the calfskin is used, then the leather has to be sanded from the outside of the skin.  The outer layer of calfskin is tougher than the inner part and therefore is stronger and will last longer than suede. However there is a counterpart to the nubuck, because the nubuck is sanded from the outside, there maybe some apparent natural imperfections of the leather. Most find that the imperfections give character to the nubuck.


About the Crazy Horse Leather ( Black ):

This strap is Crazy Horse leather. Despite the name, it is not made from Horse, but got its name because it was popularly used for horse saddles. 

Among the advantages of crazy horse leather are durability, water resistance, significantly reduced staining issues, and of course, its unique look, which combines luxury and vintage roughness.

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.
