Horsehide was the leather of choice during the 1940's and 1950's, due to the abundance of horses being used for agriculture and farming. With the virtual disappearance of the equine used for these tasks, horsehide skins have become more and more scarce. The beauty of this skin used for outerwear have all but disappeared from the retailer's racks. This has sharply increased the value of vintage Horsehide Jackets in the secondary markets.
We are proud to offer the classic horsehide jacket once again to the discriminating Customer who is interested in a garment with character. Horsehide ages and wears differently than Cowhide, Steerhide and other leathers. The natural creases and patina finish developed over time creates a sense of style not found in other leathers. And we offer these timeless classics at very competitive prices.
Please note: Horses are not slaughtered only for their leather. Horsehide leather is a by-product of the livestock industry. Several countries consume equines, much like Americans consume beef, buffalo, etc.
