Made in the UK using the finest top grain leather and is sewn for strength (not riveted). This lead has been manufactured with leather tanned with 100% natural fats. When cold, these fats sometimes migrate to the surface and leave a white, wax-like residue, which can be easily “polished” away with a soft cloth, this is a mark of quality. This product may appear “stiff” when first purchased, use will improve and soften the product. Available in London Tan, Black, Red and Red Tartan.
