For Chromexcel leather, something we’re all very excited about here, our supplier is a factory called Horween, located over in Chicago. A family owned business for more than 100 years and spanning 5 generations, Horween Leather Company aims to produce the word’s best quality leathers efficiently and innovatively, without compromising quality.
As we are the only British manufacturer to be using this leather, it’s my job to explain its properties, benefits, and how you can expect it to age (spoiler alert: it ages brilliantly).
‘Chromexcel’ may sound like a broadsword from Game Of Thrones, but it’s been around in some form or another for well over 100 years. The process of creating it is a ridiculously skilled operation, involving at least 89 separate processes over the course of 28 days, some of those done around the clock to ensure a good yield.
-The extensive dying process is undertaken using naturally occurring pigments and applied using heat, steam and pressure, all overseen with a careful hand. The base tan is achieved using chrome salts, hence the name Chromexcel, and characteristically yields a soft, supple and very durable leather. They also turn it blue, but that’s neither here nor there. This stage is incredibly specific in its concentrations, pH levels and timing: one small mistake can result in a ruined batch, an angry factory manager, and is a waste of a perfectly good hide.
