DESCRIPTION: This leather builds on the success of the Brompton concept, but more wax has been impregnated into a thinner raw material and a duller finish has been added to provide a more rustic, worn apprearance. This leather is unique in that it comes in almost completely black but through production and handling the lighter undertone becomes evident and the antique becomes apparent. Wear and use will continue to burnish and polish this leather thus further enchancing the overall effect of an antiqued appearance.Old Attic 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. Old Attic 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.
