All "smoothout" leather (bridle) items (black and russet) are finished with period stains or dyes applied using period techniques.  This has all come out of my extensive research on the 19th century tanning industry.  The leather also has built in mold and mildew resistance in these period finishes.  To see pictures of the dyeing process in action please follow the link below.

To see more pictures how they dyed leather during the 19th century.

We use 1860's period techniques to dye leather.  An entire side is dyed at once and allowed three days to fully set up.  The drying process makes the finish water resistant as called for by the Ordnance Dept.

Following period methods has made it difficult to stock leather items so there may be a delay in getting your leather goods.

This way of finishing can cause the dyed surface to turn white in cold weather.  This is a common problem in period leather as well.  This white can be cleared with an application of white vinegar. 

This is all done in order to give you, the consumer the closest copy of the original items as possible.

We are now offering the English imported color on russet which would have been more common color of russet in Confederate leather.
