About the Leather Tannery
We use traditional Old World Hermann Oak harness leather for our straps, pack saddle rigging, breeching and breastcollars. Why Hermann Oak? Because Hermann Oak has continually set the standard for quality Old World leather tanning since 1881, and is now one of the few American tanneries remaining. They know that quality leather begins with the best hides. The Hermann Oak Leather Company uses only Prime Grade Heavy U.S. Native Steer Hides in their St. Louis tannery. They still use the finest natural tree bark in their tanning liquors for wonderful richness and texture. The leather is tanned until it is firm, strong, and tight-fibred. Their skilled technicians then hand-work each side for a smooth, consistent, even-colored piece of leather. The leather is stuffed in drums with heavy tallow for exceptional weather wear, thickness, ease of cutting, and durability in the field.
