This Chocolate Brown Suede is a full grain Horsehide suede that has been chrome tanned from Shinki The leather is highly flexible and feels chamois-soft on the surface This suede is unique as it has been produced specifically for Himel Bros, designed to replicate the early suede of California and Block tanneries
