Top Quality Spanish & French material is tanned with mimosa and quebracho extracts that give it a compact fibre, but at the same time, flexible and adaptable to different articles.
The lighter weight classic Vacchetta is used by our customers primarily for carving and tooling. It carves and colors very nicely. It is very soft and supple for it's weight, and therefore is excellent for hand tooled cowboy boots as well. From larger manufacturers such as Lucchese Boot Co., to smaller makers and custom builders such as Rocketbuster Boot Co., Splenda's natural shoulders are the preferred leather for hand tooled boots.
