Veg Tanned Double Butts (Double Bends)
Veg tanned leather is part of Italian culture and DNA. In fact, vegetable tanning was invented by Etruscans in 800 A.C. Today, it is one of the jewels of Italian industry; in particular, vegetable tanned leather has its roots in Tuscany and it is there where today veg tanned leather is produced in the most noble and qualitatively better shape following tradition and experience that this land has accumulated over the years. Vegetable tanning skin process is in fact much more difficult than we might think: it requires lot of experience, it is needed to know in detail all various types of raw hides and all chemical processes involved. Tanning is similar to cooking good food: you have to choose the right recipe.
Coming from best raw choices of national slaughterhouse, our butts are derived from bull hides which are of the highest quality; they shows little or no sign or defect and thicknesses is generous as well as size of the skin that allow you to realize several belts thanks to its square shape and its length that can be up to meter and a half. Another widespread use of double butts is for saddlery because they are very suitable for bridles and harnesses for horses in addition to riding and motorcycle saddles . Finally, double butts are also very appropriate for tooling and engravings.

I forego a made in America label on my products simply because this Italian leather is the best in the world, hands down. However, I can say, "crafted in America from Italian leather" so that will have work for me.

I have purchased leather from several companies in the search for decent leather, most of the time very disappointed. This leather is by far the best i have had, lovely feel no blemishes the back is smooth and clean. Maybe a bit expensive but you clearly get what you pay for. Very pleased.
