What is Horween Leather?
Horween leather is a trademarked leather manufactured and processed by the Horween Leather Company.
Popular amongst these leathers is the Horween Chromexcel leather, which the Marion Olive Blucher Boots from HELM are made from.
The main difference between normal leather used in footwear and Horween Leather lies in the processing.
While the leather is made from cowhide, it is also made from horsehide. A certain proportion of bison hide and calf hide is also used.
The manufacturing process of the leather involves many more different stages than how ordinary mass produced leather is made.
For example, the Horween Chromexcel Leather undergoes as many as ninety different stages, taking almost a month for the hides to be transformed into the classic pull-up material that this leather is so famous for.
Horween Chromexcel leather can be flexed and folded during the various stages and this allows the grease trapped in the hides to uniformly spread evenly.
This creates a wonderful tonal effect on the leather as a whole. Anyone well educated with the manufacture of leather, especially cheap or ordinary leather, know how uneven the material can become.
However, this is never a concern or a problem in boots made with Horween leather.
The texture, the grains, the comfort and the support are completely uniform
due to this extensive manufacturing process.
This choice of leather can be polished or it can have a matte finish.
You can wear the boots made with Horween Leather for months without the need to polish or brush, as this leather rarely holds on to any dirt or grime.
