Oxblood Cardholder – Tanner Goods & Horween

Fashion
Tanner Goods is introducing a new item every Friday. Two Friday’s ago they released a new line of cardholders featuring Horween leather, tanned using the Chromexcel® treatment. The Chromexcel® process uses a combination of chrome tanning and vegetable tanning. The hide receives a chrome base tannage from chrome salts and then a vegitable retannage from a proprietary mix of bark extracts and natural agents.

From Horween’s blog:

The benefit of combination tanning comes from the specific attributes that both chrome and vegetable tanning impart.  Generally, chrome tanned leathers yield soft, supple, and durable leathers, while vegetable tanned leathers are round and full feeling, patina well, and are easy to coax into shapes using heat and moisture.

The cardholder pictured above is from cordovan (horse hide), and it will show more and more of that gorgeous light red color as it ages.

      Yeah i don’t see anything either. They must have sold out, and I believe they release different leathers each season.
