All leather used by Whiskey Leatherworks is sourced from some of the top American tanneries, such as The Horween Tannery, Herman Oaks, and Wickett & Craig.
Please explore the leather options:
Natural Brown Chromexcel Highest quality and unmistakably beautiful. These are two characteristics distinctive of leather from The Horween Tannery. For over 90 years, Horween has used the same artisanal hot-stuffing formula to infuse their Chromexcel leathers with an oil and wax blend to create an extremely rich, buttery, and durable leather, which is hand-stained. This heritage leather features natural leather grain, exhibits a rich pull-up, and retains softness & color for generations. These Natural Brown Chromexcel straps are 8-10 oz. in weight, buttery & supple. This leather will quickly become your go-to belt from day one.
Horween Black ChromexcelThe Black Chromexcel straps are finished with the same tanning process as the Natural Brown Chromexcel straps- buttery and beefy. Heavy 8-10 oz. in weight, this leather is soft and supple. A Black Chromexcel belt is well-suited to be a top-shelf, daily go-to belt.
Black LatigoIf you are looking for a belt that is strong, flexible, and exceedingly handsome Latigo leather is a natural choice. Horween Latigo results from a two-step tanning process tanning that combines a chrome-tanned base and with a heavy vegetable re-tan. This results in the refined yet, natural, look. Each of these straps is 8-10 oz in weight and will last a lifetime.
Natural Veg TanThe Herman Oak Tannery is notorious for producing some of the best natural veg-tan leather in the industry. These full-grain straps are 8-9 oz in weight and like all our natural veg-tan leather products, the Natural Veg Tan will develop a gorgeous patina with time.
Dark Brown English Bridle If you are enamored by the best English Bridle leather available, look no further than Wickett & Craig. These full-grain straps are 8-10 oz. in weight. They are flexible, yet highly durable. The classic characteristics of English Bridle leather.
Crazy Horse BuffaloThe Crazy Horse Buffalo strap was the first in our Buffalo leather collection. Eye-catching pull-up was the very first thing that we noticed. We brought a side into the shop, built several prototypes, and sent them out to friends for authentic feedback. It didn’t take long to realize that this leather would be a staple in our line-up. The veg-tanned Buffalo straps are 8-9 oz in weight, sturdy, flexible, and have stunning pull-up with lighter undertones highlighted when flexed.
Crazy Horse Gray Buffalo We added Crazy Horse Gray Buffalo leather straps following overwhelming feedback received from the Crazy Horse Buffalo belts. They have the same 8-9 oz. weight, sturdy and flexible. The elephant gray color reveals a light gray pull-up effect when bent.
Indigo Blue BuffaloWe have always been attracted to the color of indigo. For this reason, when we came across this leather, we added it immediately as an offering. Each of the veg-tanned, 8-9 oz. straps are beefy, robust, and flexible. The dark indigo color reveals a light blue pull-up effect when bent. This leather is characteristically one of a kind, yet still manages to go with everything.
Brown Buffalo No wardrobe is complete without a classic brown belt that is as durable as it is attractive. The veg-tanned Buffalo straps are 8-9 oz in weight, sturdy, flexible. The Brown Buffalo leather has a consistent color. rather than a pull-up effect of our other buffalo leather belts.
Green Made one at a time in our shop, this spring we are proud to honor our Scotch-Irish heritage with a short run of this stunning palmetto green leather. This stunning 8 - 9 oz. very firm, veg-tanned leather that has been single drum dyed.
These pieces are perfect for a day of hurling or an evening spent 'round the hearth with pipe and book. The spring green pairs well with Khaki, Navy, & Nantucket Red, and of course- whiskey.
