When we set out to create our Signature Leather, we knew there was pretty much only one company we wanted to partner with: Horween Leather Company. Founded in 1905, Horween is undoubtedly one of the most respected, if not the most respected, leather tanneries in the country. Our Signature Leather is a Latigo Leather. That means it’s a combination chrome and veg tan, which gives it incredibly durability. Horween sources their hides from all over the upper midwest. The team at Horween hand picks the best hides, and the top 15 percent go into creating Ball and Buck’s Signature Leather. It takes the craftsmen at Horween 30 days, with some 35 steps in total, to process our Signature Leather. No detail is overlooked.
