Most of L.ong products using Crazy Horse leather, Saffiano leather, Nubuck leather of it’s uniquety.
Crazy Horse Leather is a unique leather type that undoubtedly stands out from the rest and its name comes from the leather that is used for the creation of horse saddles and which is also known as Saddle Leather. Crazy Horse Leather is also more susceptible to a unique patina that makes the leather item look like it has scratches on its surface. For people looking for a rustic, slightly worn look, crazy horse leather is known to provide this distinct look over only a short amount of time.
Saffiano leather was first made in one of Italy’s most famous tanneries and was a signature and patent of established design house Prada. The name Saffiano comes from the cross hatch print that was pressed into the wax that coated the leather. Saffiano leather is very resistant to stains, scratches, and water while maintaining an elegant appearance.
Nubuck leather is leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibers, producing a velvet-like surface. It is soft to the touch, and durable. Water drops darken it temporarily (it dries to its original color).
To preserve the natural beauty of leather
Real leather is a natural material, incredibly porous, and will never be completely waterproof. Avoid getting your leather product wet where possible, but if it does happen allow them to dry in a cool place. It should be kept clean and dry, without exposing it to lots of mud and dirt to prevent stains.
Well cared for, your leather products should last for years!
