Bridle Leather is vegetable-tanned using traditional methods and then has had both the flesh and grain side stuffed with greases and finished with wax. Doing this gives the leather an ultra-smooth appearance on both the back and front while creating a softer, more pliable leather than vegetable tanning alone.
